Radiance

Her smile lights up the room,

With so much depth and color

That it is blinding.

How can anyone be that carefree?

That radiant?

That unbothered by everyone around her?

She is so in touch with herself,

That nothing else matters.

The mean comments,

The off handed stares

The judgement from strangers,

All fades away into a sea of black around her

and the waves become white noise.

She is a lighthouse on the dark horizon,

Attracting people towards her light,

Like moths to a flame.
