Oh, sweet pain!

How do I refrain?

From ripping out my hair

At your constant presence.

I try, believe me, I do!

But no matter what,

I can never be rid of you.


A Midnight Star

Midnight, starlight,

A heavenly, beautiful sight;

Shining bright,

Streaking through the night.

A sudden flash across the sky

Zooming by; in a fleeting moment,

It is there, then it’s gone,

Leaving you to stare.
