Poem: Leap of Faith 

Black night's moon sees right through me.

I look at the sky feeling only the soft moon's light.

I am numb.

I look out seeing the billowing smoke from the factory pipes.

Dark clouds mimic how I feel.

Down on the sidewalks I see the lights of cigarettes, reminding me of fireflies.

One by one they disappear and reappear as the people relight.

I look up at the stars for the last time.

Eyes indulge in your last look, lungs take your last breath.

The air is harsh, I am no longer numb I only feel pain.

In my room with the midnight walls my lover lays where God falls.

Standing on my balcony, I look down and take my leap of faith.

No more pain. No more sadness. No more happiness.

Nothing.
