making light of darkness

written by: Yuan Changming


in a world always half in darkness
your body may be soaked deep
in a nightmare, rotting

but your heart can roam
like a synchronous satellite
in the outer space, leaving
the long night far behind
as long as your heart flies fast

and high enough, you will live
a life of light forever
