glow worm

naked and shining bright behind the curtain of a shrouded sky a glow worm bears the lonely torch of my sorrowed fading soul sometimes it slides down upon a comet to reach foundations in the catacombs of a heart suppressed by anger fear and darkness trips the fuse of new beginnings and arrests the thief of luminance when it reflects on the sliding scale of downfall and reflections there comes to light a firmament of hope and obscured aspirations refuses to relinquish glimmers of a sparkling rollercoaster ride and tells me that there is a stellar constellation with my name on it conveys the message that one radiant flicker is more than enough deep in the confines of a baseless basement of dusty mouldy gloom it speaks a quiet tune of resilience in the face of stark obfuscation purses its lips in a speech bubble that only I myself can penetrate and radiates through suffocation blindness fatigue and lost resolve until I comprehend that step by step I’ll reach the canopy once more 08th November 2020
