My mind floats freely
like a long, dusty road
leading back to nowhere.
My head tilted back
I study the sky
looking for the answer
I found once in your eyes.
With an icy warmth
I traced the small smile
that fleetingly touched your lips
and a small part of the love I have for you
burns my fingertips.
The moon's quiet glow
shines light past my eyes
when I can realize the way the night ends.
Darkness from this moment is gone forever
You have just silently whispered good-bye.
