Believing Is Seeing(For Miss S) - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

I look into the darkness
& only see the darkness
staring back at me.
You look into the dark
& see

the colours that can be
cajoled from it
from the darkness
you draw forth light
I can only see its absence
I see what is not there

You see
what can be.
I merely look.
You see.
You see!

    You dear sweet Irishman! What insight you give me, and as I peer at this poem, through my cold-swollen eyes...you make me love you even more for the character you instill in me! Thank you! (Report)Reply
