A Friend's Letter To Me


After the silence of my heart's echo almost deafened me
And the darkness of it terrifying me
I saw the newness of it all in the eyes of a young girl
If you are keen to know, till now I don't know how to tell

The company of a sad me is needed for life if possible
A side I never have to help me as much as I desire to be stable
Then there comes the sense of hope
Coming to me like the rays of light to lead me home

It does not seem dark anymore
I feel I will be fine
Because at dawn I wake to a thought
This light again I will find

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
