There is an illuminating flutter;
A fast pace flicker between light and dark,
like a star before it burns out.

It's form is never uttered,
but I'll take what I can get-
only total darkness isn't acceptable.

I know my thoughts clutter
and I have an impulsive jump,
but the light keeps me grounded.

I know at times my head is in the gutter,
but, honestly, I have self-control now.
I'm creating my own light now.

Yet, It is like a shutter
allowing the light through
at the right pace-
and needed space.
