A brilliant light peeks through the dark shrouds of clouds,
Pulling away as my fingertips eagerly reach for it.
Messing with my mind.
The light shines brighter once I retreat back to the clouds,
Playing tricks as if it wants to comfort me,
Pulling back once my hands try to grasp it again.
The dazzling light brushes my cheek,
Promising a better tomorrow.
But when I fall for it's scheme,
It cackles in my face and disappears.
The light is just a lie,
Breaking my soul and yanking on my heartstrings.
This fraudulent light,
Why do I love you so?
