NO SUNSET

I see you staring

I see the sun dimming

giving way for the moon,

hiding all of itself so that the moon can glow.

I see you staring, hiding like the moon,

waiting for me to step aside and leave some reflection for you to glow for a moment

“Just for a moment” you said.

But I wouldn’t

I have decided that I wouldn’t dim my light like the sunset.
