ALL THAT GLITTERS ISN’T GOLD

ALL THAT GLITTERS ISN’T GOLD

You’re glitter and I’m a child that cannot escape. 

But I do & each time a piece of my heart breaks, 

Pretty soon, I’ll have nothing but an aching soul to offer, 

And if this all goes well & I offer my sweet laugh to you, 

Love doesn’t come truly from a heart that has melted in the trials of life. 

I’ve managed to evade you like the waves on a beach that recede as they come. 

And maybe you hate me by now ‘cause I do. 

But my writing’s my best in its blue condition. 

I have been alone for what seems close to an eternity, 

I’m still struggling because this cocoon of loneliness has protected me,

But taken me away from what life is supposed to be like, 

It seems that I’m simply living for the sake of it, 

Like someone before had told me too, 

And each day facing that reality and truth is what pulls me away from the stars.

After I say goodbye to one chapter of my life, 

I’m gonna spend my life reading the chapters of other’s lives. 

And pray I’ll find my purpose somewhere, someday.
