All The Lights

All the lights

Oceans of people

And I don’t see anyone



As the year draws to an end

Building empires

From the ruins

Stronger and quieter

Than before

Armoured in self knowledge

quiet companion

Without needing

Because last year alone

And I survived that 


A deep draught of rejection

Knowing I would 

Transform the poison

Into light

And even if

No one sees

I know

But kiss me

Cold cheeks against my beard

We tell our stories in sips


But I hear you

No matter how far away
