The summer sun grew darker as another light faded
Bright bulbs shined high in the sky
But now they just flicker
My heart is scorched and my breath is short
I rest as long as possible to try to skip the next day
I remove your pictures from the wall but keep the posters
Into a box so I can reminisce
I don’t want to live in the past
Luminescence that now twinkles but never flickers
