If it weren't for you

If it weren't for you

A Poem by Canicus

Darkness was consuming me

and trapping my heart

getting me ready

to fall apart


Killing all hope

making me want to give in

I thought I was helpless

I didn't think I could win


but you came into my life

and lit a fire bright

which scared the darkness

amazed at such a sight


you are my world

my life, my everything

I'm lucky to have you

for you I'd do anything


If it wasn't for you

I might not be here right now

you saved me

My thoughts... it is really amazing at how things, or certain people can save someone; perhaps without the person even knowing they did save you and the troubles of a time where your down. I really like the way you wrote the deep hopeless emotions and turned it over into a light of hope and being saved.

I loved the ending it was wonderful how it rhymed. Well the whole thing was wonderful with the rhyme, none of it seemed forced, but the end was especially good.

Beautiful Joshua, very beautiful! The internal struggles we all have in attempting to handle our despair and not always knowing how to or if we can. Love this poem, a wonderful mixture of conveying your darkness and then the hope that came into your life :) Well done!
