A Madman's Lullaby

After the sun bleeds colors
Into the sky the white stars 
Are scattered like diamonds thrown 
Across the violet black night

And at the edge of dawn
A thread of light expanding 
And spilling like smooth thick cream
I am the moth drawn to light

Hovering and circling
Until the glow disappears 
And even the quick flutter
Of my wings cannot lift me

From soulless obscurity
