in transit

I love the bright lights
Sparkling blue against the night
As if I could spend all my years
On this endless road here with you.
Echoes of voices trailing behind
Happiest in your eyes
Even in midnight's blindest side
I know we're safe anyway.
Tomorrow will chase away these lights
Miles away into the sky
But this drive will keep the highest of me
'Cause I grew up a little bit
Here, with you.

Papa's kisses

Though eyes shut and lips sealed
In secret, I'd often awake 
As you would come in some early mornings
Just to greet my sleepy head
With the softest, sweetest little kiss

Though I am a stubborn sleeper
Maybe the crankiest ever made
You could only wake me 
In such a way that I am infinitely happier
Than I ever was in my dreams.

Still, I am
Beside you
Eyelashes rise and fall
Away from you
Because near you
No longer still, I am
Shifting my hands
To not be frozen
To not be so frozen 
Or from the sidelines, you may
A still of my misplaced smile

There, I laid
Wondering of tomorrow.
Eyes like brittle starlight
Disintegrating under their lashes.
Had I dreamt of another day
Maybe I could redeem all my faults,
And all of myself.
Tomorrow, oh tomorrow.
Will I open my eyes again?
