The Light

He spoke to me, I hesitated, but eventually I spoke back,
Scared that he might judge me, 'Why is it love she lack? ',
His words of knowledge sang, like music in my ears,
Was he the sign I was looking for? , to help me then disappear,
I nodded my head, his words were right, words of life,
He was like a smooth criminal, he'd stab you with his poetic knife,
A knife that pierced into my soul, and ripped out my broken heart,
To give me a new soul, a new life, a new start,
She spoke like an angel, a broken heart she assumed I had,
But insecurities were the answer, the reason I wished to be dead,
Out my mouth came words of darkness, pain, hurt, and sorrow,
I bled for a better life, if only a better tomorrow,
Emotions were put out in the open, nothing no longer left to hide,
No more pain, hurt, or darkness, I yearn to be on the other side,
A dark cloud over my empty head, like its forever night,
Their words were like rays of sun shine, that brought me to the light,
