FICTITIOUS

Fireflies

I wonder where the fireflies fled

And how they must lament.

Defeated by the floodlit streets

And forced to their descent.

 

I wonder whether the fireflies deem

We stole their precious lights.

On countless lives of their own kind

We've been lighting up our nights.

 

I wonder if the fireflies return

To claim their midnight reign.

I'd like this though as all I wish

Is to see them once again.
