In The Sky

As dusk crowns the sky,
he stands tall upon the roof.
The melancholic winds of night
rise to tear apart from his skin
drops of sweat soaked
with tales of pain and despair.

His frail hands reaching; twitching
by the rhythm of his impulses
to grab the moon above his head.
The pale beauty taunts him
of his happiness, dreams, and desires
that are forever out of reach:
An elusive love in the sky.
