Shut the lights of the amber, for the shadows loom darker in the moon light
Eyes clenched sleepless with a moment of raging silence
pierced through the hollows of the room.
The hallway smirked in its agony
in the aftermath of a battle spelled in its walls
…Stained in its own mahogany of a one side war!
You would not fall for the warmth of my hands
There was no reason for this change
For the rebel clenched your body, Â set torn in its own duality
I did not touch your skin;
it was reeling in forever loops of eternity-
Tense and alien, tears sealing my faith or
Breaking our promises of betrayal
The way we were lost-
I would hold you, when the moment relaxed
When your body would give in and the eyes would move freely
And the demons would set you free.
I would know that moment,
From the freedom that would spill from your eyes and
The warmth in the pillow from your release of let-go,
When the struggling would cease and you would nod
To let me know that you are free for the night.
