The first dawn arrived-
An end to twilight.
A light feather,
Floating on sugar-coated air;
An end to tears.
Dancing on clouds of love and bliss
Until the denouement of candy floss-
I morphed into an irritable, anxious unicorn,
Rainbow’s light ferociously adorned.
My blue blood burned with fearful fire,
Creation being my church spire.
My numb, confused soul
Tempted by the devil
Casually pondered death.
My second dawn awaits me-
An end to twilight
Without the rapid, endless orbit
Of my mind’s earth
Around my soul’s sun.
My earth shall spin at a slower pace
And yet I fear blue blood’s return,
I fear my devil’s deathly call.
