TwilightA Poem by Mockingjay
I wandered aimlessly
in search of darkness
afraid of the light
afraid that it’s beauty would blind me
then leave me like the others
forever craving, stung by their own tears.
I was content in it’s shadow
until I saw the light in your eyes
you told me not to fear it
But instead set out and seek it
You created an image in my mind
and believed that I would be entranced
I let go of your hand
and began my pilgrimage
long and distant
when I found it, I loved it
I thought I’d cherish it forever
so I plunged
uninhibited... into the light
unafraid of it’s strength
deeper and deeper into the abyss I fell
too soon, too fast... it disappeared
I realised it was just a reflection... a mirage
Lost in my dark corner
contemplating my deceit
the distance... which was but an illusion
and the time?... love has no recollection of time
where did I go wrong?
You appeared to me then,
through my tears.
We sat in the shadows
I told you of my downfall
A lifetime of love lost in one flicker of light.
Questioning my heart
you made me retrace my steps
over and over again... till I stumbled on the truth.
Satisfied... you made the sunrise,
or did you?
a brilliant shine engulfed us
I realised... it had always been there
in my eyes... in yours...
I laughed at my foolishness
Why had I yearned for that illusion
and chased it so passionately?
when I possessed my own
A candle which you lit
as our world spun, high off the ground
I was swept off my feet... illuminated.
I remembered your eyes
I asked how it was they came to shine
“What you see is your own reflection...”
you replied “...you are the sun”
And indeed I did sparkle then.
I wish I could light up your life...
Like you lit up mine
and guided me to this soft glow
one that will never fade.
Now that you’ve enhanced it
and made it magnificent
the night has gone
You are my dawn and then you are my dusk
leading me to shine
Even in my solitary moments
Your eyes will always be there
In the twilight...
