Some say you are a lover and chase you with silken words. They long to embrace you and run themselves off dripping roofs.

Some shout you are a madness and flee you with gilded footsteps. They seek to escape you and bury themselves in golden arcs.

Some think you are a master and worship you with aching minds. They seek to un-chain you and waste themselves in futile lines.

But I, I know you for the night and listen to you with all my heart. I seek to drink you and become my own light.
