False, Idle.

Constantly
on the cusp of,
in danger of

shining too brightly.
fading out completely.
too busy consuming

other people’s art.
too lazy to create my own.
down on myself,

my own hands
choking out my light.

forever
in between,
not good enough.

shining completely;
fading out too fast.
too idle these hands,

shaking when I need them steady.
too bored to act.
down on the world,

mine own eyes
closing to the light.
