by Vanessa Caraveo
Dusk gradually makes its
with vast stars above
an abysmal dark sky
each representing a hopeful wish
from a foolish soul that will never
come to see the light of day.
I can hear him
singing the same song as last night
for he too wishes to annihilate his solitude
with an exquisite serenade
in such somber abyss.
Through his ballad
I feel I am one with him
the same heart
same naïve faith for a change of fate.
My sorrow is infinite
just as those boundless stars in the sky
uncontainable tears and endless regrets
are my forlorn symphony
His alluring melody
echoes through the obscure abyss
in the distance now
becoming more difficult to hear
his serenade becoming only a
of a dismal night without end.
