My Light

My Light

A Poem by Jon Settle
"

Forbidden Love hurts..

"

My Light


In the darkest of nights,
Or even my darkest hours
When I need help
I turn to you.

When I need some inspiration

I turn to see the diamonds you call eyes
Always sparkling like the stars in the sky,
Shining even on the brightest day

My Light, I know not a soul
The way I know you,
But to know you at all
Is a gift from the heavens

My love for you,
Is a curse and burden
Though I know it can never be,
I love you and always will
No matter how great the burden.

This is very beautiful and I understand where you come from. Sometimes the honesty and raw emotion is the best thing to write down...the very thoughts within us that we can't escape. Very, very nice write, friend. I can't wait to read more. :)

Corny is perfectly fine, if you mean it and you certainly seem like an honest person. Lovely poem. Keep it up.

I love this and I think it's not corny at all! I know how it feels to have deep feelings for someone that seems to not be interested or whatever. Believe me dude, I know what you're feeling! Ha. I dated a guy once for five months and we broke up together( both decided to) and I found out that he liked my best friend the whole time. I was so heart-broken since he was the guy of my dreams. It literally took me about two years to get over him. But I can tell that this is from your heart and your emotions are captured very well! Again, excellent job! :D

Haha, yeah that's possible too:)
Nicely written, at first I thought it was a religious poem but as I read it I became aware that this is a love poem. Did you get a good response from her, or did she pretty much (Figuratively speaking) pat you on the head and say "Let's be friends" and go chase some other guys?

the fact that you admit that it's corny makes it even sweeter, you should give this to whoever it was written for =)

They already know how I feel.... I even told them through writing too
This sound so much like, the poems written to soul-mates. They are bonded yet, rarely promised. The type of love, that feeds your soul and drains your heart. You conveyed this so well within this write. Well done.
