Jason J. Yu (May 24,1995 / Gastonia, North Carolina)
Sometimes the agony,
of being lost in an unfamiliar place,
takes the S off my chest,
and brings forth my kryptonite,
as I walk the city streets in somber.
Contemplating all the shadows lurking,
ready to devour me with one false move,
I look up to see a single star,
moving across the sky,
and slowly tears begin to fall.
Cause beneath the darkness of the night,
lit only by the sign of a liquor mart.
I see nothing.
I feel nothing.
Except the ever approaching fear,
that I would never know anything else,
other than the abandon I feel,
walking these streets at night,
where the only shimmer of my existence,
comes from a single star,
running away from my lonely footsteps as I disappear.
Into the shadows which signify my life in general.
An illusion to the world around me.
