5 Months of Midnight

What is day

When all you know is night

Shadows are invisible

darkness becomes light


My eyes need not adjust

This state will never change

There's always 5 months of midnight

Always 5 months of pain


Shining memories of the sun

Dull with every passing day

'Til the sun seems more like the moon

A crater filled monotonous grey


Endless sky

And stars are trapped within 

As small beacons of hope

That we will see light again


Until then we sit and wait

And wish with all our might

That star light star bright 

Will be the sun one night
