Chasing the sunset

With every sunset

My vision worsened.

I chased the falling sun

So as to blur the present.

Walked through the cold

And let go of warm memories

Solitude is all I kept

So I swam and drowned in it.

And while at the bottom,

The bottom of a sea of emptiness

I found a painful redemption

One the falling sun taught me to live with.

With every sunset I heal.

I stare right into this glorious wonder.

Till my eyes make out its form

Then with my eyes I follow

As it disappears down the horizon.

With every falling sun,

My heart seems just a little whole

Solomon
