A moment of light within darkness

A moment of light within darkness

A Poem by SleeplessVolcano

I remember a hole I once was in

No one grasped what was going on

But you gave me comfort

Without saying a word

My head fell on your lap

Your hand, peacefully, rested on my head

And for a brief moment -

Within thousands of dark ones -

I felt loved

And your presence

Gave me just enough strength

To breathe.

Just a wonderful multi layered write here. There is despair and yet some wish to return to the memories. We should all have friends such as this. Simply beautiful.

Gosh, so powerfully impacted. I felt the depths of despair being comforted by that light force. How I envy those who have a strong faith. Beautifully penned Sleepless Volcano and I also appreciated the carefully chosen artwork.

beautifully said Sleepless. its the simplicity and straight forward vulnerability that touches my heart when reading .. i think this is what poetry is sir! loss of ego and pretense in that kind of collapse is a wondrous cleansing says i! perfect pic to go with. of course to have a friend in Jesus Christ is at the front of my thoughts when I relate to this; then my Ma when i was sick as a child .. but to have such a caress and a lap to offer to a friend ..one human being to another is perhaps one of the most powerful elements we may have in this world. God bless .. thanks for sharing your wonderful, personal poem sir!
