Fireflies kiss the night sky –
but no one ever told me why.
I can’t escape my own path.
Everyone knew it wouldn’t last.
Still, I tried to differ.
I thought they’d all be different.
I can’t blame failure
when we allowed ourselves to become strangers.
Wet grass cushions my tired feet.
Fireflies beckon my thoughts into the night.
They buzz softly
with a flicker of light.
