Alone in the dark I sit, awaiting your effervescent light.

Memories of your smile bring me happiness, then I open my eyes to nothing again.

Without your bright, elegant distractions I sit forced to remind myself of my sins, therefore again the sadness begins.

I remind myself daily, blaming myself for what I have lost, or was it something I never really had?

Where are you? I'd rather be blinded by your light than have clear vision in my own darkness.

Now I sleep with my eyes wide open because it's too dark to tell when they're closed.

I want you...I need you...we lit up the world when we were together...and then I feel the tap on my shoulder, I turn. Nothing...until a whisper in my ear says "We."

With that reminder I reached into my pocket, pulling out an imaginary object. Closing my eyes only to re-open them again, and there you sat, right next to me, in that now lit darkness. 

"Our" lights becoming one.

A single teardrop trickled down my cheek as I smiled and said "You never left..."

From then on I swore to never forget my own light, that I am beautiful.
