Lightblub Moment

Lightblub Moment

A Poem by rhythm&blues


Wandering aimlessly, through the dark
power was shut down once you left


paid the balance in full, plus arrears

 forgotten, you don't always need service
 for lightbulb voltage moments

This is very interesting. I had to read through it about three times before I fully grasped the larger metaphor at work, and then like a "lightbulb" it happened in my head...I knew what you were talking about and I felt it all at once. There is darkness, sometimes, no matter what we do or how many lights we turn on, candles we light, etc., but then again, out of the darkness there always comes light eventually, for the day always dawns. Nice wordplay and ideas here.

Our minds can be illuminated when darkness is all around us. It is not always a comforting place to be. This is a thought provoking piece.

NIce idea of making the words nearly invisible to denote darkness.Wonderful term "lightbulb voltage moments" THe way you have used a real situation to present an emotional one( as stated by Leslie) is indeed commendable.You seem to be brimming with ideas.
A short poem with a great impact.Great work!!!!

Much obliged Leslie, thank you for reading.
Very well penned. As they often say, sometimes it's darkest before dawn. We all come to realizations within relationships in our own time. Great metaphor at play here.

I really don't know what to say on these 'about me' pages. I'm newly divorced, have recently found poetry and loving every minute of it. I'm a bit on the shy side until you get to know me. My best .. more..
