Happy Monday! A brand new week deserves a little creative writing, don't you think? After seeing week 28's prompt, I immediately thought of the life cycle of stars. This was one of my favorite themes.

Thank you Brenda!



far too bright

need to turn away

I was looking for an escape

now there's no way out

wishes fall

dreams are devoured

madness resides around every corner

laughter abounds

but the halls are empty

it's only me

and my reflection

echoed back in the distance

too far gone

I can't turn away

there was never an escape

it's only ever been me

a quick shimmer

releases the illusion

engulfed by waves

and then
