Collecting Light

IMG_3289.jpg

Slipping into the corners where it is only black

Or just a speck within the swarm of flies

Collecting light

Placed in her jacket closest to her chest

Reaching for tiniest glimmer to add spark in those heels

After all that’s what she she relies on for an extra bounce

Not a chance any even heard of her collections or even tried for such treasures

But it’s the way she likes it

To her dismay, though, buzz surrounds only when her elbows bruise

And her head hits the ground during this conquest

And in those moments the sun rays strike and she melts

She is stripped, empty handed

The lonely jacket almost in shreds

There is every chance now to witness and it is always taken

In that chance the buzz can be heard from any direction

But shortly scuffs and finds another interest

The ring still bleeds in her ears well after they’re gone

The rays penetrating

She struggles to slip into her patchy jacket and runs for the corner again

But that light will always still be waiting for her to catch

This she holds on to and waits and waits and waits for
