"I love you."

Simple as that.

Or not that simple.


She is a firefly
Searching for a way
Out of the glass jar
Where broken wings lay

She longs for the world
The one that surrounds her
But she cannot be in this world
All around her

Spending her days
Searching for a light
If only she'd look at herself
And trust the sight

Drowning in self-pity
The firefly fails to see
That the glass jar is open
And she is free

Now that I think about it, the line "Drowning in self-pity" would make more sense as "Blinded by self-pity."

This was a lovely, intricate poem, and the metaphor you created was beautiful
