No Special Shining Ray

It was great the first few minutes

but reality sank in

it played my mind

and I knew I wouldn't win

It forced me away

but still held on tight

that thing unnamed

that shone so bright

I thought it was something at first

but I found out I was wrong

I'd taken it too seriously

thank God it didn't last long

I thought it was something more

something I wouldn't know

it seemed familiar

but it didn't show

Now I understand

what it had been that day

It was just like everything else

no special shining ray
