A gaze in the night sky
Got me looking at the snail's pace fading clouds.
As the lazy moon beams cut through the stratum of clouds,
Only to reveal a full moon
Seemingly smiling mockingly across the 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
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
