Take a Closer Look

Standing way back here,
everything is perfect.
The world sparkles an shines.
I dare not move closer though;
up close, the view is so different.
Under the glaring lights,
the magic wears away.
The shine is gone
and it all looks so bad
when you can finally reach out
and touch it,
because it crumbles to ash
the moment you try to grasp it.

Prompt: Take a Closer Look
