when i felt most beautiful

He asked me to dance,
And with every twirl,
And every shoulder glance,
A small piece of glitter
Stuck to his big navy sleeve.

And then, when I saw him
Later, with another girl,
His arm a new glittery limb,
That was the evening 
I felt most beautiful.

Because, when, in the morning,
I would be clean (and gone),
His big navy sleeve would forever hold
The sparkle that had shone.

  1. This is lovely. The whole concept of the sparkles brings up a good tie back to something greater. I love it.

  3. Beautiful poem. <3 How in the world did you come up with the glitter idea? It's very expressive. :)

  4. Thank you so much Jo! Inspiration comes from all around, metaphor mixed with real life makes things feel magical. xx

  6. Very kind of you! Thank you Nora xx

  7. It's a good piece! It reminded me of the short story Dead Stars... but maybe that's just the emphasis on the sparkle in the poem.
