Imagine the diamonds encrusted in the night
The whispers, the faint mist, and a dim yellow light

That’s probably me
Somewhere in a corner
Trying to think of something neat,
Thoughts tumbling in my mind, scattered and apart
My heart is screaming with delight at the view
But my mind doesn’t know to how to describe
No, not a clue.
