Beyond the Glow by P D Dawson
Beyond the Glow
Was it not I who moved among this dark?
Trying to outperform the light
Placing concrete among pixel sparks
Trying in vain to fill the night
Was it not I who shone so bright?
Trying to shade you from my love
Pushing apart all things from sight
Trying to see them from above
Was it not I who sprang from mud?
Trying to clean all imperfections
Parting the sea as if it were your blood
Trying to rid you of my affections
Was it not I who got the bends?
Trying to sink deeper into your soul
Praying for that which no one mends
Trying in vain to exist amid your glow
