Lights flash, sparkle, beckoning for attention,
A sublime spectacle of two colliding.
Love, even hate, rains down—all admiration,
Only so far to run, no place for hiding.
Some try opposing those willing to compete:
Virtuous folks who want a padded retreat.
A plate of pathetic; why live in shadows?
They’d reconcile if given a small dose.
