I saw you through dazzling eyes,
illuminated amidst the normal.
You sparked my attention
with your glowing pretension.
We went out to watch the sunset once,
and saw the sky shift from blue to orange.
I looked keenly as the sun disappeared
below the horizon—happy and content to be next to you—
but, when my head drifted to you,
you were watching someone else.
Every day was brighter
when I thought you were beside me,
but, it turned out, only I was beside me.
It started with a flaming fury
until, one day, I realized it was only my fury.
My love for you was like the blazing sun
but now it's crepuscled to no return.
