Glamour

Glamour
Is a funny thing.
It can make darkness
Appear bright.
Shadows reflect across horizons
Into rainbows.
But do not be deceived.
Just as darkness
Appears lighter
And more comforting,
The monsters hidden inside
Are illuminated
As you draw near,
And their shadows
Stretch before you
Growing larger and larger.
Even across the horizon,
Where they would appear
As colorful arcs,
You may never find
Where they reach the ground
Around you.
Instead they dance
In front of you
And behind,
So that you are unsure
Of which way you should run
To escape the illusion
Laid out before your eyes
As beauty.
Perhaps, it would be better
To simply see them
As they are,
So that you
May better face them
With a clear sight
Of what needs to be done.
