She Keeps The Lights On

She keeps the lights on
Home is where we don’t need stars to sleep
She falls in dreams sailing on wild oceans
Picturing shores she’ll never reach
Blue skies where all birds disappear

She keeps the lights on
Under the sheets she reaches for the phone
Wondering how to send
Silent tears he’ll never see
Quivering lips he’ll never taste

She keeps the lights on
Time turned hurt into a slick armour
She finds spaces to destroy within herself
Spaces to dig a well
To let go and forget

She keeps the lights on
She keeps her eyes closed
Losing him is so sad
Like an unfinished poem
Words that will never be said
Unwritten postcards and bottles lost at sea
Losing him is like seeing stars raining on a lake
Knowing that if you tried to reach them
You would drown in beauty

She keeps the lights on
There are no shadows in the face of the truth
No missed details, no oversight

She keeps the lights on
Darkness will not win over her
This time around
