Nothing for something

In the moonlight,
Of the night,
I stare into the unknown,
The silence of being alone,
Look; see nothing,
Though everything is something,
A contradiction of itself,
And that’s all that’s left,

Daring a dream,
Killing a scream,
Hiding a fear,
Shedding a tear,
Slowing of a beat,
Needing to defeat,
Wanting to know,
Leaving to go,

Searching to find,
Losing a mind,
Fighting to win,
Forgetting to grin,
Settling for less,
Cleaning a mess,
Excepting a death,
Catching a breath,

Dreaming to wake,
Longing to break,
Going to leave,
Bleeding to greave,
Dying to heal,
Destroying the unreal,
Leading to follow,
Pleading for another tomorrow,

In the moonlight,
Of the night,
I stare into the unknown,
The silence of being alone,
Look; see nothing,
Thought everything is something,
A contradiction of itself,
And that’s all that’s left.
