Borderline of Nowhere

Subtle candlelight blows out

Stormy winds all lashing out

Still, I see it shining brightly

A tiny heartbeat pulsing lightly


And I wonder how it’s glowing

Such a driven little thing

Pitter-patter on my window

Flutter of a paper wing


A bit naïve and blind again

Like love hidden inside

Wouldn’t be more trouble

Letting in a firefly


Brush a hand against my face

And whisper with such an embrace,

‘Do you ever think of me

As I count all the stars

That are now twinkling in your sky?

Though I really can’t say why…’


I felt like you were with me

When the lights on in our city

Left the blurred view in my mirror

While the moon grew even clearer

And for once

I really wished that it would rain
