and the city stained the sky

Fire works couldn't compete with her.
even the brightest star hung her head in shame as her brilliance
went unnoticed over the fluorescent lies of the city lights.and broken by anonymity
the moon shone no more
even in daylight
the glitter from the tainted glass windows made the sun
nothing but a jealous glimmer in the over shadowed heavens
like a glass of red wine on pristine white carpet
the city stained the sky
luminescent against the night
iridescent against the day
she dazzled even closed eyes
and the city stained the sky
