Dual Visage

Photo by wisconsinpictures on Unsplash

I so often step in between light and darkness
When shining bright, I reach out
And spread warmth to any I can
Hungrily the masses reach toward me
Plucking every ray within their grasp
Devouring and hoarding what warmth they can

And soon I descend back into the abyss again
But this is when I truly inspire awe
And all those who remember my brilliance
Marvel at how what was once so lustrous
Could survive and move amongst such shadow
But they do not know the cause of my duality

It was living so long in darkness
That taught me how to create my own light
