A vast blanket of darkness, the world at night Bombarded by the explosion of light Were you bedazzled by my kaleidoscopic luster? You were silenced with awe And your eyes manifest wonder
My splendor of lights were formed from the shadows And in its depths I'll return Sadness and hurt made indigo Bliss and jubilance made yellow
So light me up, ignite me be the flame to set me afire colliding thoughts had lifted me up This is my extravagant goodbye
As the last glint of light flickers in the last seconds of my show as it falls slowly to be one with void i'd like to see one last smile aglow
you're the spark that triggered me to combust i was once a firework show now one with dust
I thought of this while watching the fireworks last new year. We are all fireworks just waiting to be lit. Concealing feelings til we can't take no more. A firework for me is a grenade's beautiful way to die, so you're lucky enough if you find someone who'll either light you up or pick up your pieces when you explode.
