Sometimes the sky’s too bright.
The dazzling light melts our thoughts,
And blinds our minds.
Sometimes a moment of brilliance,
Becomes an instant of glittering madness,
An illusion of eternal clarity,
Spinning our mind into a flash
Sometimes it’s easy to forget
The lies we heard
And the tears we shed.
They hold the intensity and the radiance,
Of the moment that outshines the pain,
Which never aches,
The sky was too bright.
This poem is meant as a tribute to the great Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas, from whom I have borrowed the first line of his famous poem: ‘Sometimes the Sky’s Too Bright‘.
