Protector No More

Protector No More

A Poem by Amber Smith

My first memory
Is you in the sunlight
Iridescent and shining
My protector, beautiful

I was put here for one reason
To love you
But that broke
Uncertainty left in its place

Twisted up inside
And lost, without direction
Misguided hate and anger
Just seem to fall flat

I was led to believe
This glowing figure embodied love
And yet here I am
Without you, without light

Whence light is the compass of ones road, only he illuminates the heart through the windows of our eyes. Oh, but like the moon is your body, who harnesses the light of the Sun to shown the way through the darkness and stars. If light is not present, perhaps sound may guide your way, the sound... of your heart

this feels kind of raw, which is good, I think this is very relate able for everyone at some point in their lives.

I love how plain, real and powerful this is. It takes great courage to be without those who we call our "light". Perhaps one must be their own light.

Very powerfully written. The beginning sets up the scene for a star-crossed love story, but the rest tells of the tragedy of a failed love and the consequences. You capture the feeling of loneliness/betrayal very well.

I just enjoy writing. Don't care to much about the criticism. Writing should be about storytelling and the feeling it gives you as you write and create. more..
