The Light


have you ever found a Light in the Darkness
of the blackest, Darkest
Night
a Night where a crow could fly by in secret
and no one would ever be the wiser
have you ever called hello
into the echo of the deepest, deep
canyon
have you ever hoped when all hope is
gone
and you never should have gone inside
but the rain falls
and you run faster than you ever thought you could
Night falls
and you fall
because you never saw it coming
the cliff looming
but Darkness swallowed you and promised never to spit you out
and you were comforted in the cold embrace of
Dark
and you cried yourself to sleep wondering
where the Light you found in the Darkness is
now
you so dearly want the company and the only responding call
is the echo of your former self
and you whisper curses to whomever may be listening
but the Light went out long ago
smothered in the soft blankets of the blackness
of the pitch and you
breathe in deep and curl into a ball
to hide your Light away
and shut out the Darkness of the world
but then, just as you think the world will surely end
the Light you found grows brighter and stronger
and bathes the world in morning
you breathe a sigh of relief
and the terror of the Night is put on hold
as the Sun saves you from your Darkest
Nightmare
and the hope you had when there was none to be found
may have saved your life
you lasted the Night
when others
did not
you lived to see your
Light
once more

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
