Allow Me

Allow Me

A Poem by KWP

perhaps I am talking to myself


allow me to shine 

just one more time 

for when I am at my zenith 

I know you 

I slid, I fell 

my perch was too proud 

with so much still to learn 

my face met with mud 

I dishevelled 

I lost you 

allow me to shine 

just one more time 

for when you light me up 

your radiance completes  

right now though I hurt 

with a pain in my gut 

darkness surrounds 

I know there is a lesson here 

I need to learn 

but I am done 

allow me to shine

just one more time 

rise up with my love 

to share and to shine 

I’ll radiate others

not leave one behind 

but for now 

you must 

allow me to shine 


just one more time 

unselfishly -

i overtalk meself ;}
i read this as a prayer...a glimpse of the Divine can do some very challenging things to us mortals ... and truly we are only "allowed" such sights of wonder .. as certainly they are not "attained" by works ... this is a smart position to take says i ... let me shine one more time so "you" can shine the more George I think she's got it ;) let me know if this works ok!? if i can muster the courage i may give it a go me self

always ... always XXX
I think poems like this always spring from an inner dialogue. Which is a good thing.

Unselfish or selfish... love must always come from yourself first or you can't really give anyone anything true.

I've been doing drugs today so I could be way off on this.
