Nyctophilia

Updated: Jul 26, 2023

The skylight is broken

But its tears still pour

The stars that sang their love

Won’t sing it anymore

My breathing becomes shallow

And the ocean sees

How the sunset paints my heart in Red

And now I only bleed


I watched a drop of moonlight

Fall from a stranger’s eye

It waited there a moment

And fell with him as he died

-

Please excuse my happiness

I know that’s not what you mean

I know it took so long for your

Soul to come back clean

So go and cry out to the night

That I survived the firelight

And the chains wrapped around my feet

If the moon can hear your cries

Oh I hope it will disguise

Your salvation in its dreams


The facade that I created

Oh I made it out of glass

Throw a rock and it will shatter

Into every pane, you pass

My body is my vessel

So the rest can stay at sea

And swing upon the seaweed

And the ghost of what I need


I watched a drop of moonlight

Fall from a stranger’s eye

It waited there a moment

And fell with him as he died

-

Please excuse my happiness

I know that’s not what you mean

I know it took so long for your

Soul to come back clean

So go and cry out to the night

That I survived the firelight

And the chains wrapped around my feet

If the moon can hear your cries

Oh I hope it will disguise

Your salvation in its dreams
