Still in the night,
the fireflies glow; and I
glow too. My heart alight with you.
In the caves of my confection,
your body warm and next to mine,
but not within vicinity; synchronicity,
meets despair. Troubles arise
and I can’t bear to see you grimace
when the pain sets in.
Now we are alight;
with each other’s flame.
Stage 4 may or may not materialize,
but I will love you all the same.
