JAPANESE SUN

Another lost light,
the kid inside me shivers in fright
this life felt so foreign
ever since you were taken by pain
With eyes shut,
I saw your face and my chest was so tight
the wind whistles and sings of my ceasing dreams
a ghost of us blankets me tonight
out in the cold, where I chase the rising sun
the faster I run, the farther the sun
as languishing as mazes,
as dizzying as whirlpools
round and round
until I can see none, until I’m almost gone
but the thought of you rekindles a fire
freezing inside me
I melt an outcry
and felt so alive
I sniff fervor in the air
as I dance with the ghost of us tonight
to the music of my dreams
I swore by the nightβ€”
our algid lips shall be kissed by the sun,
and its rays shall wrap us in one
ignite our skin with sparks of hope,
our eyes shall meet and know we’re home
just wait for me, wait for us
until the sunshine comes
for tonight, I dream with eyes shut and a wide awake heart
