morning // midnight


morning dawns after midnight  
this awakening is not real light  

but then i'd like to think
the truth is we meet in the night,
singing our sorrow lullabies
caught in a world of intrinsic highs

morning dawns after midnight
with only my bones in sight

i know you haven't left me alone
just a secret face i can call my own

natural sight was never a good fit
for two souls who meet beneath the skin
their eyes never choose to meet; 
for they shut as soon as they greet

convinced this is worth searching forever
cause i've never seen more color
than i do in a dark hour

I’m not afraid of what I can’t see;
I’m just afraid of what I won’t

morning dawns after midnight
awaiting the hours to reunite
