Easy goes the lonely ones
who yearn only to be seen,
to cornered rooms through passage ways
shines light through front door screens,
and darker moons make darker rooms
’till streetlights disturb our sleep.
From candlelight to wildfires
we dance like coals beneath our feet,
and household sounds creep overhead
we hear music down the street.
Danger knows the rowdy ones
who only chase their dreams,
spinning wheels past city signs
Together living’s cheap,
from wallflowers to wildflowers
to my heart’s last lonely beat.
