Sunsets should be required

the sky is on fire and we relax to admire

shades layered high and we tilt our heads to see more

the colors you see are full of smog and the crush of a society that needs it all

but for a moment we become one with the hues as they take us away from the day

it’s like a mix of insane beauty and the nothingness that’s left when your best friend dies;

it never stops amazing as it changes everyday. orange and red, magenta, gold, and pink and lavender, wait for me to paint them in layers.

The layers of the sky that seep into your mind are the reminders of life’s beauty even when it’s gone.
