Yin & Yang

Yin & Yang

A Poem by Nathan Thompson

I've been learning about different aspects of poetry in college this week so I thought I might try something new. Tell me what you think please.


The light from the room blinds me

The television is good

The seat beneath me is warm

The light from the room blinds me

The tea I drink is sweet

The hour is getting later

The sky is getting darker

The great light is still burning

The shadows grow scarier

The light from the room blinds me

Shadows in the room hides me

The light is in love with me

I love the light sat near me

I live in light and shadow

I enjoyed the "staccato thoughts" aspect of it - the inner voice on paper. Nicely penned!
