Goodnight yellow bird

Goodnight yellow bird,
you sang me a song,
but without melody;
I can’t sing along.
Goodnight freedom,
how can I miss you?
If I’ve never dreamed,
my life isn’t true.
Goodnight to
bright lights, happy faces,
bodies shuffling,
different places.

Goodnight yellow bird,
I’ll sing you a song.
I’d save you a memory,
but you’ve already gone.
Goodnight freedom,
we had happy days,
with sunshine and laughter–
we go our own ways.
Goodnight to
everything I’ve loved.
the lights disappear
when I look above.

Goodnight yellow bird,
I’ll say with a tear.
I’ll never see your face,
you’ll never know my fear.

Gone

My friend,
who’s an illusion.
My life,
trapped in confusion.
No one’s here.
Gone.

My friend,
just an illusion.
My life,
always losing
confidence.
Gone.

My friend,
you’re an illusion.
My life,
never choosing.
Unread script.
Gone.

My friend
is an illusion.
My life,
needing solution.
Everything,
gone.
