I dream of moonlight.
Feelings in monochrome,
Love’s senseless monotone
Drowning all thought.

Drifting down empty roads,
Wondering when dawn will come,
Fearing to face the sun,
Hiding my eyes.

Shadows of what once was
Jeering me silently,
Chasing relentlessly,
Giving no quarter.

A silvery oasis,
Remote and unblinking,
Not floating but sinking,
I dream of moonlight.
