It Wears Off

Tags: poetry, love

It wears off, it wears away
The newness, the newfound awareness
The luster
It wears away

And they go away.

Once you were special
So were they.

Once you were something bright and shining
Like a star
In the night.

No more.

It wears off, it wears away
The glow they saw in the sky
Was you once
But you have dulled, you have faded away.

Did you change
Did they change
Did we just see each other as we are
Not as we were
In the heavens
So brilliant and twinkling and sparkling
In our eyes.

No more.

Gleaming, glistening, scintillating.
Cascading colors of love that was lost
At what cost.

No more.

I will do it no more
I will never allow it any more
Even when you 
Flash with brilliance 
Of wit
Of joy
Of beauty.

No more.

But the vivacious effervescence...
Just once more.

I did and do so adore.
