Last light

He was miserable all day, overshadowed and forgotten. He tried to be seen. To remind people he existed.

He peeked from the left, but they blocked him from view. He tried to peep from the right, but they were on to him. They stood everywhere. Strong and opaque.
Still, as the day wore on, they grew complacent. His time was up, after all. But then, just as he went out, he smiled one last time. And this time, nothing could hide the fire he had within.

Oh Thinking Cramps, have missed you so
I HAVE managed to catch up, though
You'll find many of us from Y!360
On Facebook, as are you, i did see
And, as usual, limerickly, i do score!

Thinking Cramps said...

Aunty G!! I've missed you too,
Y 360 was playing peek-a-boo
But welcome back,
We're on track,
Making up a limerick or two :)
