To be a smile in the sky.

To be a smile in the sky
that brightens
and slowly fades
as the night appears
another shows half crescent
a smile in the sky
never at rest
while allowing the others
to know there is a safety
a happiness
to the end of each day
still guiding their way
as their wicked dreams
come out
the demons feed
again the smile
ready to shine brightly
vanquishing the pain away
to be that smile must be exhausting.

To be that smile
to be that guidance that light
I am not
I am not a smile
and a laugh
I’m a cynical manifestation
the demon at night
raiding the dreams
a reminder that
every thought
isn’t a smile
and every moment isn’t a laugh
because life is everything
all of it
and your only lying to yourself
giving a name to the sun
which is only a star
shining brightly
awaiting its time to dim
and burn out completely
because it’s only us
and even we may fail
and that’ll be the story
of all humanity
only the story will be over
because there will be no one
left to share or speak of.
