The Danger in Sunsets

Like a sunset, he seeped into my realm
Honey golds, calm roses painted onto the canvas of blue
His secrets guiding his ship at the helm
Sounds of waves, washing away the darker hues
Yet, the fading sunset must one day go
The rolling tide must one day subside
There lies the danger in seeking a hero
A beauty too great walks with arrogant pride
In eternal darkness I am left lost
To wander through misty clouds of foggy gray
I wonder if sunsets are worth such cost
When their beauty is only to tempt, not stay
But until my sunset finds his way back
Stars are my comfort among the sea of black
