Paint me red

Paint me red

I paint a light
when tis darkness and others can't see
Fluorescence paint is needed for me
to ensure they can see
my silhouette
out in the darkness
a vision of the only one
of a kind of me

your own take friend
that's me.....
now there is no more glee
no light for me
this is what I in your poetry see
won’t call it blasphemy
as distance alone
lends beauty to a scene

we have once good friends been...
haven’t we?

One of your gems. No whining for attention, an exemplar of alienation.
In short,
a gem.

You shine beloved without the flurenscene paint. You do with your unique style.
