All I Have Is a Flashlight

Composed: 7/9/13
Description: Just some thoughts.

I search for you in the night
In the land between here and fantasy

You’re the smoke and spark of my synapses
A battery
But there is no wood
Coarse, warm under my thumb
To ignite the stove
The jump and thump of my body’s pump

All I have is a flashlight
And a battery dies
