not every light is real

there seems to be light

vibrant as a summer butterfly

colorful as the finest rainbow

it grips your heart

breathes down your neck

like a fire that comes alive

like a death dug out of its grave

like the honey that hides the sting

like the eyes of a hyena

it looks good, looks life altering

but when disaster strikes

when the light fades

and the cheers die down

its a letdown; a betrayel

you realize you were tricked

abandoned; outdone; faked

because you realize that while it pulled

it seemed to live

seemed to be happy; content

you've been blinded by the light

you've gone deaf from the cheers

and that's how you followed

like a blind duck

like an ignorant animal

like an oblivious seeker

and as the last of lights dissapear

into the nothingness it sprouted from

you're left alone
