an instance of such longing

ending with such rush

Pleasant Exchange

I haven’t seen you in quiet a while

You look the same

Same as you always did

You don’t look too bad, but not that good, either

As I walk up you smile

We exchange ‘hello’

We quickly mention that it’s been too long

How we shouldn’t let it go this far

We exchange all the simple small talk

And then I continue on

Find my seat at the other end of the bar

You might walk down and talk a little more

You may not

It really doesn’t matter

For it has been a long time

Things change

People change

The in-between grows longer, wider

And after that much time

It’s realized

We’re out of things to say

No Sunshine

There isn’t anything left for us

We accomplished all we set out to do

We turned on the days

Just to have the nights

But what did that get us?

Soon we were sick

Sick of the darkness and the never-ending plights

Fires we burned always turned to ash

So boredom takes its place

And with a little bit of willingness

She will roll us into the grave

The final resting place

Where the dirt is piled so high

And we will be the reasons for the flowers above us

But, then again, we asked for this

Prayed for this

Begged for it

Until our mouths rotted and what was left of our souls

Dried up and drifted in the chilly nighttime winds

This is what we wanted

We planned it out, we played it over

Over and over again, nightly

Never skipping a step

Never missing a beat

No sunshine

Just ash

And cold

And darkness

No sunshine

Just the night
