Believed in a Light

a poem by Paula Michelle Puddephatt, UK

rubies in blood
those flags, I routinely ignored
just watched them
dancing
day after day
in the wind
believed in a light
that devoured my mind
artificial
never quite seeming unkind
no stop sign
in sight
not even a pause or rewind
on these emotions
and yet
I must return
to the darkness
this time
at least that is familiar
safe
and I know it will always
be mine
