Just Enough (I Don't Understand)

Just Enough (I Don't Understand)

A Poem by A.Lee

Left alone in empty darkness

Crying out to no one’s ears

Nobody here and no one care

Enough to dry away the tears


So say good-bye to all things living

Close my heart; my mind won’t change

There’s no room left to think or reason

And no words left to be exchanged


But at the end there comes a whisper

Just warm enough to melt the ice

Just soft enough to reach inside me

Strong enough to change my mind


Oh ray of light, you puzzle me

What makes you stop to take the time

What made you stop to utter words

To fix a broken soul like mine


The pieces just don’t fit together

I simply cannot understand

What could be going through your head

To make you stop to lend a head


I don’t know why you told me ‘no’

When even you don’t want me near

But somehow, light, your gentle words

Were just enough to keep me here

Wow, what an incredible write. The vulnerability and longing in this piece was so heartbreaking, but in saying that, I thought that you expressed these emotions in such a beautiful and elegant way. I loved the stanza "But at the end there comes a whisper/Just warm enough to melt the ice/Just soft enough to reach inside me/Strong enough to change my mind", as I felt like I could relate to it wholeheartedly. This poem really did epitomise the nature of relationships. Nice work,

This poem left me feeling torn.
There was a beautiful moment,
but it had a depressing cloud

It saddens me to see what this
relationship could be at its best.

Sometime we need a little kindness and a few hopeful words to keep us going forward in a life. A very good poem. I like the story and the ending. A excellent poem.

I am lots of things, but here you'd identify most with the writer and avid reader. I have three beautiful children. The oldest boy, Seth, passed last year after fighting a long battle with cancer. .. more..
