There is a place
Beyond the scraped skies
And bleeding lights

A place with room
For a single soul
With enough air
For only one breath

Where heartbeats rebound,
Echoing on the walls
Of the twilight dusk

I have been starved for so long
From the beauty of
An unpolluted sky
That illuminates
Like small silver blades
Slicing the fog away

For this is the lavender night
Adorned with jewels
That are worth
No amount of fortune

From this place on Earth,
The greatest treasures
Lie not in a chest
But in this solitude.
