Light (Poem #17)

 

 

The darkness is overwhelming at times,

and I need to hide

from the demons lurking there;

those insidious insecurities,

I know so well,

never leaving me alone.

 

There is light though,

I’ve seen it

               once

when you held me,

and told me,

if we face the dark

               together,

the dawn would come.

Hey red one. Nice piece. I can relate to the darkness and the demons, but also to having someone to hold onto me during those times. I think it was well written and succinct.

The first verse alludes to depression, maybe PTSD. The second describes one of its primary antidotes. This one's brevity makes it all the more powerful. Well done.

i remember this with someone...she always made me feel everything was going to be okay---
but somehow, some way for some reason....we let go----

i miss that...with her---it was special---

thank you Amit for your words and visit...
This poem is so beautiful and inspiring redzone. The first lines of each verse are a poem of their own. The juxtaposition of dark and light, demons and dawn, is brilliant. Great language and cadence. Dramatic, flowing verses. “If we face the dark together”- yes. Brilliant.

Thank you Lyn... wish the light would have lasted longer...
Unfortunately I resemble this poem at times. You really did a great job sketching out the feeling involved with not being sure about yourself. But those last lines are definitely the prescription necessary to help pull out of the nose dive. What a great piece...Awesome.
