I sit by the dark riverbank

Fireworks blooming in the sky

A splendid second of everything

The next fade out and die.


I return to my empty room

The house devoid of light

Replaying the firework in my head

To pass another barren night.


A sudden surge of missing

Strikes with more emotional pain

Realizing my world of darkness

Will never have fireworks again.


My reminiscent sweet dreams shatter

Replaced by horrid everlasting nightmares

The starlight and life drained away

Of the emptiness that I am most scared.


Each night these feelings drag me

From the realm of slumber and dream

Heartache when my eyelids drop

The sky’s darker than it seems.


Only today I finally understand

To rid the breaking heart and fright

Fireworks are meant to be looked at

When they are burning bright.
