Your Light

Your light was not
as bright as
I believed it to be,
but I allowed myself
to be blinded by it;
I caught the sun
and held it for a moment
and even in burning
I held onto a hope
misguided and misplaced,
dimmed by darkening skies
and the frailty of reason.
I only sought truth
in your illumination
and to share the peace
between artist and Muse.
Instead I found
I was the light
in your shadow.
