Do you glitter inside –
thinking bright thoughts and happiness?
Or are you darkness in your soul –
stashing sins in pockets or suitcases?
Shimmery sunshine smiles for all to see –
yet when alone, are you handcuffed to your grief?
The crescent moon grins in the night sky –
yet the gloom it wears, is visible to the naked eye.
Glitter and radiate in the warm sun –
if that’s what you must do to function.
When the door shuts and night descends –
Take off your mask. With me, you needn’t pretend.
