The Brightest Star

Monday, 23 April 2012

Your star blazes so bright that it blinds,
Temporarily dazzled by the luminosity of the sparks it is easy for one not to see that despite your light,
Your wish for us is to remain in darkness
Shrouded in pain and insignificance,
For you steeled your heart to light this fire and all that is left inside you is ice.
You will not let the flame diminish and you don't care who you burn in order to ensure that

But you have forgotten
That people are afraid to of being burnt so they won't get too close
And they will retreat completely once it dawns that you want to destroy their star,
Lest it detract from yours.
I wonder if you will regret your choices when all that is left are the embers of a brilliant life, cruelly lived.
