I lived out on the fringe of light  

Waiting to be saved just in time  

But got drawn away by darkness  

The way sugar does little children 

From that moment on I was lost 

It was like most seasons and me  

Shared our history but didn’t agree 

Along that broken road of loneliness  

Where I felt colorless times- hurt deep 

The way a sunburn tinges for days  

I thought I heard the moon mocking me   

Staring at the universe- feeling empty 

Till I finally came to understand my life 

And that I could’ve survived… any other
