Can neon nights dream, too?

Flowerbeds of Fairies

Are neon nights a million fireflies and firecrackers,

Are neon nights a million fireflies and firecrackers, tangled in technicolour?

They pulsate with the power of a hundred heartbeats,

They pulsate with the power of a hundred heartbeats, watching the blurry brilliant world with a buzzing blush,

They pulsate with the power of a hundred heartbeats, watching the blurry brilliant world with a buzzing blush, blossoming like flowerbeds of fairies.

Their smile is a cobweb of colour that ripples and stipples through streets

Their smile is a cobweb of colour that ripples and stipples through streets as their halcyon hearts wash away their wanderlust,

Their smile is a cobweb of colour that ripples and stipples through streets as their halcyon hearts wash away their wanderlust, now worn as window-dressing.

Their eyes marvel at moths that flutter with a hue of hope,

Their eyes marvel at moths that flutter with a hue of hope, shedding their shackles of monochrome

Their eyes marvel at moths that flutter with a hue of hope, shedding their shackles of monochrome and hoping that they will become more,

Their eyes marvel at moths that flutter with a hue of hope, shedding their shackles of monochrome and hoping that they will become more, from bright butterflies to biplanes that evaporate into heaven.

It’s a dream,

It’s a dream, a promise to be more.

(Aside) Hey, Commaful! This is my first piece, on here or elsewhere, for quite some time. I hope that the quality of my work hasn't gone down from that break but I feel pretty content with this piece, at the moment. :)

I originally had something more negative down, but I retooled and scrapped a good portion of this piece to make it into what it is now. I tried to use quite a bit of personification, for both the neon lights and the moths, so I hope that came through and that this isn't too abstract! (Any feedback is welcome!)

I hope that you all enjoyed this! I've been enjoying reading all of your works when I have the time, and there is so much talent on this site that I had been missing out on. Lots of love to you all, and keep on writing! Take care! <3
