As you walk through dusk

Ghosts whisper, monsters moan

Waking up the shadows of past,

May these lights guide you home.


Your heart constricts with fear

Your mind sending a rush of adrenaline

Deep in the tunnel, you hear the jeer

A trap that seems to be menacing


Wind rushes in,

You can’t help shivering

Fighting off the cold,

How can you be so bold?


Stumbling towards darkness,

I hear your labored breath;

Why did I allow you to drown in loneliness?

My heart cries as it feels the incoming death.


Run! for I will meet you in the middle

Do not fear for I will never repeat the same mistake

There is no time to idle,

For we can either break or make.


Bearing my sins and shame,

I tried not to think of a catacomb

For we seek a different aim

Trust me; these lights will guide us home


The lights flickered as we finally collide

Revealing the stark joy in our eyes

As our hearts intertwined

Indeed, such a blessing in disguise


For these lights brought us home.

What a lovely evening guys! No assignments to do nor quizzes to take tomorrow and so I sing Hallelujah!

Managed to sneak some time so hurraaaaah here’s our fifth collaboration!
