Sunrise, Sunset

*Author’s note: This was collectively written by myself and my high school poetry class. An experimentation of sorts with word association and the poetic form.*

The sun rises and sets
The mood rises and sets
The mood rises and sways
The mood collapses and sways
The mood collapses and crawls
Every mood collapses and crawls
Every hope collapses and crawls
Every hope collapses and dies
Every hope rises and dies.

Most men wait for death to become spiritual.
What a wasted life.

Storm clouds make idle threats
Like a cowardly loan shark
Shadows crawl over your sun-kissed face
Infecting pleasant demeanor
Plaguing infectious behavior

What was once life is now death
Standing in a hall of mirrors revealing no reflection
Confused, unable to see yourself, your path
Staring at your feet you notice cracks in the ground
Resembling cracks in the glass
Resembling cracks in your skin

You wear your scars like badges of courage
Medal of Honor for endurance
Purple Heart for kindness
Comrade of a fellow solider deserving of a dishonorable discharge

You are made of radiant light
Such is your core
Your essence
Your being
I am but an oracle
A seer of truths
A patient observer

You have left a wake of warmth
Photonic brilliance for those left in the cold to latch onto
Allow the favor to be returned
Permit but one humble soul to enter
And refuel romantic gas lamps running on fumes
