Light Bringer


I’m the shadow that light casts away…
I’m the smoke that came after the fire
I’m the star that died the day it was born…
The one that cried for it after

Can’t you save me
Can’t you feel me

No more do I sense the sun on my face
Nor does the breeze caress my mind
To me, the sound of the wind’s lullaby is dead…
I’m a sleepwalker without senses
That views the world in shades of red

Forsaken by the seasons
I hide from the rest of the world
The wolves – I’m the rabbit
The one with the toxic wrath

But I can feel you
Your cold stares from places I can’t see
Why wont you take your shield down for me?
An abandoned child
Until my innocence gave way to thorns

A moon’s tear lights your eye
You want me, I know you do
Your dark desire
Are you afraid you’ll become the same?

You can trace the path of stars that I uncovered
While I was drowning in my thoughts
You can see the world that I discovered
Take my hand – I don’t want to walk alone

Hurry
I don’t have much time
Look me in the eyes
If you’ll just touch me I know I’ll be alright

Oh light bringer
Save me before I’m lost completely

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
