Default Skylights

Fervid lights blend into skin
burning down everything within.
Light destroys, heat ends.
We close our eyes to cool our skin.

Weeks become months--
months become years.
Nonsense provokes reaction,
reaction-led tears.

Ominous night lights pass
Railroad darkness sets in.
You look into the night--
the skylights are there again.

The whole poem is actually a metaphor for someone that I love. They serve as the skylights ; always there, yet always virtually curbstomping my heart.
