Northern Lights

Northern Lights

By Emily Radebaugh…

I couldn’t escape fate

I’m falling in reverse

Back to black

And shades of grey

But my love for you is vivid

Passionate and bright

Rainbows pouring from

The heart I wear on my sleeve

Tones of red, orange, and yellow

Bleed through my skin

Hues of blue, green, and purple

Illuminate pitch dark

Through my eyes

I’ve found my feelings


My love for you is blazing

Love for most is pale

Pastel at most

But for me

My love for you

Falls on the radiant

End of the spectrum



Extraordinary and incandescent

As the sun on a cloudless day
