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,

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
