I never knew

I never knew

A Poem by Shasha
"

It just arrived.

"
I never knew, 
When we went down,
When your each word turned into a letter,
When your voice became my favourite song.

I never knew,
When we went too down in the dark,
When you emptied your words,
When your song turned into screams.

But now I know,
You took me in the dark so that you can light my heart,
To convert my worst nightmare into a beautiful day dream. 
You emptied your words because they weren't letting me sleep,
And those screams, was your husky voice trying to sing a lullaby to me.

WOW! WOW! And WOW! I think this must be your most impactful poem that I've read of yours so far! I love it! The reading felt like you were pulling me along on a journey . . . I thought I knew where it was going, but it kept surprising me. The impact of your message grows stronger from start to finish. The last stanza is brilliant. Such awesome contrasts like "screams" and "lullaby" in the same thought! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

A amazing poem dear Shasha. The words felt true and honest. When we allow someone in. Who can make us laugh and live. All of us need a lullaby sang to us. I liked this poem. Thank you for sharing the outstanding poetry.

I'm glad and you are welcome.
This was a husky, yet dreamy melody of dreams rallied... I never knew, I never knew... But now I do, and that... Rhymes are spot-on, meter is fantastic, especially the last verse... Excellently penned...

Im confused about what "your each letter turned into a letter" is trying to convey, but all in all, nicely done :)
