Darkness And The Light - Poem by tony atkins

My life is in darkness except for a light
This light is not happiness my family or friends
See my life is in darkness no need for light
For see my face and u will know why

I’m not disfigured but i will not be seen
My left eye is blue and my right is green
You should know this is not what i mean

See my problem is that I’m cut too deep
Yet some were u will not see
The light is my fear and darkness my hope
The tears on my face cause me to choke

Two people covered the light
One is dead the other alive
Her death did not heal
But she is still here in the way I feel

The life of the other
Brings me cheer
I love them both
Life and death the same

The life I now have draws me close
But the tears I still have cause me to choke
My friend will shield me from the light
But there hearts are transparent
They can’t shield my life
