Glittered Happiness

I stood in the sunlight
and threw up all my memories into the sky
Each one, like little pieces of glitter, reflected
as they flew about
shimmering and flickering,
dancing in the breeze about me

In each small glimmer
was a tear, or a smile
a regret, or a hope
a life, a past, a future

And as shards flew about
in a random swarm of nostalgia,
pieces gathered themselves
and began to stick to me
Each piece of perfect history
unbroken and unsealed
lay itself down upon my skin
Binding itself against me
to be bound to me for eternity

I stood with my arms
outstretched
and turned and smiled,
and revelled,
while covered
in glittered happiness.
