Light fingered
Swift and efficient
Conspiring against themselves
Nothing is ever sufficient

Take. Take. Take
Its Mine. Mine. Mine

Morally incorrect
But what a hefty paycheck
Greed is swirling
Such havoc they wreak

People & Things
They glisten and gleam
Yearn to hold them in hand
Thou the theft must be clean

Much like a bird interested,
Infatuated by the sparkle of things
Filling their homes, Their nests
Craving the beauty they bring

Such light fingers
swift and efficient
Never sufficient
Wanting more and more...

It's never enough.

These hearts taken within the dark
hidden by the cloak of night
Treasures of the soul
Give me your light

Interpret it how you wish

Fireflies flicker in the midnight
Casting light like a flashlight
Fluttering around the open fields
Calling out to each other in hope
Their light gleams throughout the night
Making paths across the darkness
For others to follow in the daylight rays
As beautiful as they are
Nothing compares to you
We'll help each other past the dull skies
Shining as brightly
As the fireflies
the new moon's coy sheen,
the starlings' nosestuds gleam;
light's secrets in darkness!
breeze ripples palm groves,
a gleam in coconut fronds;
past peeps through the mist!
In her eyes the waters gleam
Like no lake has gleamed before
Even the sun will turn and shine
Yet the moon has taken her glow

watch me see,
watch me feel,
watch me do everything
of my list of dreams.

except for one thing,
and that is to be loved by you,

even for a moon

who gleams.
at this very young age of mine
i already knew that of this
long list of my wishes, i still
wouldn't achieve the last one.

I caressed you under neon gleam,
blessed cold night, your heart mine stole;
just five days, what they may seem,
yet five rings the earth has strolled.

Moon’s suggestive gleam,
Night taut with ****** tics;
Nature’s alert peaks!

The cozy bed,
The misty morning,
The warmth of summer,
And the gleam from her face which drives me crazy.
