The lifespan of a firefly

It’s a dull kind of pain that just sits in my heart and weighs me down

and you’re the only one that can fix it

it burns and erupts at the worst times

stinging old wounds that have already been licked clean

right when head way is made the darkness crashes again

closing in on my star light

little flicks of magic extinguished one by one

the firefly’s lifespan gets tested over and over

thankfully he is inked into existenceย for all eternity
