Leave The Lights On - Poem by R. Ariffin

The room suffocates and deafening,
Without hopes and absolution to ponder;
upon; as I thought at last the storm has receded,
You came unto my mind with thunder,
And lightning and memories of times regretted;
That waters my weary eyes with loneliness,
So very wet my sanity seems to melt under.
I have stared unto myself in the mirror,
Again and again, to see, to feel,
Whether if your smile and warmth have,
Left me for good, for things unsealed.
But I know in truth, you’d claw into me;
As soon I thought the storm would
Recede into nothingness finally.
Before you leave me again, this time
Please leave the lights on so I can see
Myself fading without you
Amongst the stars that fell upon your feet
