The Sun

he was so bright

God, he was bright

he made my skin burn when he touched it

he made my heart race, 

air so thick I couldn't get a breath

like the hottest day of mid-July.

yes, he was bright

and I'd forgotten my sunglasses

and so he blinded me to the fact that

although he was very bright indeed,

he was not the sun.
