Sounds that force us awake
Bringing tears to hungry eyes
That cannot afford to try anymore.
Fighting battles nobody can hear
But all is consumed in greed
Though the smells are few
Within the light there were none.

Shimmering stars as we greet the night
Cries found in whispers we heard
For so much as we tried to cross this river
We made it far too wide and far too deep.
We then built fires to rid ourselves of angst
But it did nothing for our hearts.
Within the light there were none.

Blazing heat kept us away
From wanton abandonment we craved
Stories we heard in found riddles
Shards of glass now lay at our feet
Heavy waves of thunder loom
In our wake is nothing but destruction
Not that we ever noticed anyway.
Within the light there were none.
