the sun sets, drawing in the night that should see me depart
yet my compromise is commensurate to this invasion
that has made pithy my relationships and in turn,
dwindled the paradigm that i am the source of their pain.

the full moon illuminates the reality that
i've as little bearing on them as on the stars.
so no longer can i mumble in pain for forgiveness and penance
to justify my exile as a shadow to the night.
as much as the darkness embrace reaches out, this would serve only my ends.

instead i must stay
to cast shadows in the day
rocking all the same
though in a different kind of pain
of redundance and indifference
and innumerable scolding sunsets
paling me to insignificance
so not an eye becomes wet.
i've made the fools choice-
this gift unwanted by us all
in place of what should be the final scrawl.
