Verses by Funandfearless: Chasing Lights

(In which feeling – and not seeing – means knowing.)


***


An avenue of neon lights
Millions of tiny sparks.
In the dotted landscape
Your fitful light shines.

I wonder why I continue to gaze
At your insignificant brightness.
Static.
Charming.
Mystic.
Numb.

And like a stranded traveler, embarrassingly helpless
I stood transfixed in this ever-growing distance.
