One Day You’ll Come

After the darkness recedes, our daylight remains
Cool as the winter that bleeds, hot as the summer’s flames
A dystopia at the apex, we’ve written in the sand
Our past, present and future; Immortalized by our hands

Skyfall is what we fear, a Tiger Lily’s petals washed and worn
Simple acts of kindness – gone; replaced by the masks we adorn
Our sighs, abandoned for claws as we shred the dignity of others
Misguided by the pitfalls, too full of indignation to be bothered

We stumble as we wade on stilts, through the sea –
Of bodies, doubled as regrets we’ve made
Tirelessly you walk, looking for me
Hoping that one day you’ll find me again
