No words can describe what I’ve lost.
I’ve hidden and this is what it cost.
I am afraid of the pending rejection.
I ran for the sake of approval.
I pushed away the warmth of the sun.
I extinguished the brightest of stars.
I have taken the familiar path.
I am yet consumed by the exotic road.
I long to feel this kiss of the sun on my skin.
I need the stars to light up the darkest nights.
Yet I shiver.
I can not see.
