In the Right Light

Wrote this one a while back after watching the movie Ink:


In the right light,
No one notices anything
The shadows run away
to play at the edge of perception
In the right light,
I am resplendent
You look through my wild eyes
Both glorious and glistening
But they see through you
Your armor is dull
You are charmless
In the right light,
Blindness is our friend
We relish our ignorance
When the shadows tire of their play
The mind’s eye can see again!
Our fear is realized
The magic was a trick of the light
