Applause dies


like nothing

I ever met


somehow familiar

there’s a duality

you spark

in me

passion and pride

now my turn

here’s pity and tries



​You felt it bare 

On nights like this

How can I say

“I’m sorry”

When i’m not

You can’t claim passion

Without fear of pride

We all welcome sleep 

Until it slowly dies

I’m numb to “us”

On days like this

How can you say

“I forgive you”

When you’re glad
