This road divides us, you and I
The lights that flicker green to red
A signal, like a lighthouse rock
Upon the distant shore. I swore
I saw you calling, drawing light
Into my eyes, so tired of the bright
And glaring sight. Ignoring you,
I wanted only rest and sleep.
Your thankless duty did you keep
Until the signal dimmed at last
And tiny stars did cross my sight
Along with night. And I embrace
My cold and bitter cross. My loss,
Because I did not cross.
