In the calm night,
Crickets clamored as if they were in a fight,
A ricochet of silence,
Brought by darkness, as I close my pair of lens
The midnight breeze sent a chill,
In the distant tree, the bats celebrated their first kill,
I wondered, I pondered,
About the things I blundered.
Can we go back in time
To undo an error so prime?
Bring someone back to life,
Placate my soul that is in strife.
A reason for my beating heart,
Lost in pint-sized memories that tear apart,
Eyes that long for you,
A touch pulsating my heart cuckoo,
Fighting with the voices in my head,
Losing a battle everyday, I dread,
Just remind me who I’m once,
Put me back onto the race,
Wake me up from this bad dream forever,
Be my Jedi force and bind myself together.
