Poisoned glitter


He shined

with the sunlight

He shined

with the moonlight


When Autumn came

he was hidden

When winter came

I gave him light


I gave him my light

to shine brighter than me

to be

always in the spotlight


when my light died

the glitter didn't come

when I died

the glitter kept on shining

We should always live a little light for ourselves but the problem is we don't even notice we've already given away all our lights until it's too late. I wrote a poem about something like this but your words hits hard. *virtual hugs*
