An Ode to Darkness

by Krissso

An Ode to Darkness

If it weren’t for you,

I wouldn’t know the phases of the moon

Behind the fog she fades to blue

And I don’t feel so alone.


If it weren’t for you,

Would heat lightning somehow show through?

Perhaps we would call the moon a cloud too.

Would we know of the glitter

sprinkled along the coast of malibu?


If it weren’t for you,

how would fireflies communicate?

If you weren’t here,

would they have a different name

or would they all go away?


If I didn’t know you

what would become of 

the space in my mind

Where i sit on the roof

Looking up at the moon

Dreaming Of You Tonight

Where would hope be?

If not called to my side.

Would stardust exist

if everything was just right?


If it weren’t for you,

I wouldn’t know the phases of the moon.

I reach my hand out to her

or maybe to you

through the fog

she shines bright blue

And together we feel alone.
