Treasure Island

Penni Currie

(1960 / Scotland)

Dark Light

A dark, dark light shines deep inside
I opened my heart, to you I confide
Don't abuse my trust and throw in my face
my dark sordid past, my time of disgrace.
I want to be free, free from my thought
but its so hard happiness can't be bought
All I wanted was a friend, someone special to me.
All I wanted was you, but you couldn't see.
The light was so dark, it didn't shine bright
but it brightened my life in the dark of my night.
Now in the daylight it doesn't show
But when the night comes, then I know.
I know it was wrong to put my faith in you
I gave you my love and away you flew
Still my dark, dark light
shines bright in the night
and I keep hoping one day you'll see my light.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I put my faith in the wrong person and confided a dark past which was then used against me. I thought I could trust this person but was used and dumped yet for a while I still held out hope they would come back to me

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
