And If The Lights Dim

And If The Lights Dim

A Poem by OneAmongstMany

And If The Lights Dim


And if the lights dim

Won’t the room grow smaller?

Our eyes will dilate

Our minds will race

We’ll look at each other with new wonder


And if the lights dim

Won’t times be simpler dear friend?

The croon of nightly starling

The moon and all its shining

Only washing waves we’ll see and hear


And if the lights dim

Won’t our voices whisper then?

Hardly heard against the flames

Barely words our intonations

I understand you anyway


And if the lights dim

Won’t the outdoors grow larger?

Wilder, all growth in grassy valleys

Tireder, all stars bursting bright and far

And the breeze through the leaves of the sycamore


And if the lights dim

Won’t we see each other all the clearer?

Dumb enough to fall in love

Insane enough to tread the cliff-edge

Bowing beneath the waning all.

Wonderful use of words and thoughts. You made the reader think and ponder many things. Bright lights, dim lights. We will fall into our proper place. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

Reading this was like falling upwards into a night sky. I really have no words, but you seem to have enough words and such thoughtful beauty behind each and every one to compensate. I openly sighed while reading this, your vast yet simple capturing of love exactly. Thank you so very much for publishing this masterpiece.

Such a flow and sway of words.. a dance of phrases.. caring, loving and sharing. But all the time, noticing how love makes small things so precious, so different. The repeated phrase holds everything together.. ever together.. never changing. Precious thoughts behind the words.
