All that glitters ...

by Kitty Cat Lady

You glowered like a beacon
A search light seeking me
Honing in on my weakness
Bringing me to my knees

Lighting me from deep inside
You dazzled so very bright
Kaleidoscopic colours
Burst right through the night

Ulterior motives and shallow needs
Didn't dull your sparkly guise
Daylight robbery of precious jewels
Re-gifted as outright lies

Far too late I realised
You'd already taken hold
A harsh lesson to understand
All that glitters is not gold.
