Flicker

Flicker

A Poem by Lust for Propinquity
"

Love

"

Our world is dark

I flicker

He flickers too

We stand alone in a dark, cold hallway

Just flickering, flickering, like a dance and a promise

Casting long shadows along the walls, flicker

Monsters lurking within the darkness

Creeping closer and closer towards us

Trying, trying, to put out the dying lights

I glow, bright

He glows too, even brighter

The beasts of shadows roar, we merge, together, one

The monsters that lurked dissipate along with the darkness

Now two lights, now connected, no longer flickering, no longer dying

No longer glowing, but instead shining brightly in the eyes of the world

Just the two of us in this bright, quiet place

Our souls glow, brighter and brighter, never stopping, we shine

And the world flickers back






"At different stages in our life, the signs of love may vary: Dependence, attraction, Contentment, worry, loyalty, grief, but at the heart, the source is always the same. Human beings have the rare capacity to connect with each other against all odds." -Unknown

Quiet there is quiet nice flow at this poem. What you can fix I don't know. I am not native English speaker so I cannot tell you about your grammar etc. This flicker word I find quiet funny there . It's make almost like some chant . I like this description of darkness .

i like the straightforwardness of theme...and you capture being in that dark place with another...sharing, coping...
recently watched "IT"---and yes, reminders flicker in this poem---those scary shadows of depression, of fear.
