You instilled cadence in darkness
I dislodged trust, while trying to look for brightness
You filled our togetherness with utopian dreams
I dug into my solitude, heralding dystopian nightmares
Picking me up, you gathered my flinders
Jettisoning hope, I dispersed all of myself
With your words, you moved us up with certitude
I maintained my silence, enswathed by doubt
You’ve put in your best to sustain balance
I tipped the scales with my own baggage
You’ve ventured into a million storms for me
I’ve nurtured my indolence
You chased my embers lighting up the night sky
I stay put like a frost, muted by the morning glow!
