A gaze in the night sky
Got me looking at the snail’s-pace fading clouds.
As the lazy moonbeams cut through
The stratum of clouds,
Only to reveal a full moon
Seemingly smiling mockingly
Across the blue sea of heavenly bodies
The verge of desperation and heartbreak
Lures me into the streets.

Only to clear my mind
Worse still, her pretty face popping in my mind
Hallucinations, for a fellow pedestrian
Only to earn a thread of curses
As a reward at the point of touching the victim
My face soaked in shame
A need for her embrace hits me hard
Recalling how it warmed the cockles of my heart
Driving away discomfort

Now all that is left is the embracement
Of that precious memory to torture me
To the point of desperation…
