The light doth shine

It shines – reluctantly
Gold piping around edges
curved lines:softened by the glow
mesmerised red eyes
drawn like moths
to a wide open plain
visible and raw
for all the room to see
with a limited time
patches of rainbow fog
just another symptom
another reason
for aversion
A way not to see
the blindingly obvious


A-Z Challenge:Luminous L

Light of my life

A coiled refraction

Cast over by half shadow

Awaiting full potential

Dust laying thick on membrane

Protection from eyeballs

Knotted together like a comet

Upside down – and held

Star struck , naked and aloft

Strung up with impunity

A weight overbearing

For such a flimsy facade

My comfort; the light in my dark
