It Wears Away

It Wears Away

Tags: love poem
It wears off, it wears away, 
The newness, the newfound awareness,
The luster,
It wears away

And they go away.

Once you were special.
So were they.

Once you were something bright, shining
Like a star
In the night.

No more.

It wears off, it wears away,
The glow they saw in the sky
Was you once,
But you have dulled, you have faded away.

Did you change,
Did they change,
Did we just see each other as we are
Not as we were
In the heavens,
So brilliant, twinkling, sparkling
In our eyes.

No more.

Gleaming, glistening, scintillating.
Cascading colors of love that was lost.
At what cost.

No more.

I will do it no more.
I will never allow it any more,
Even when you 
Flash with brilliance 
Of wit,
Of joy,
Of beauty.

No more.

But the vivacious effervescence...
Just once more.

I did and do so adore.
