For My Apollo - Poem by Rebekah Gamble

This world is not so dark anymore;
you have been my lamp.
The sun is not so harsh anymore.
You are the beauty in the rain, in the snow.
Happiness is not only a philosophy;
you have become my joy.
There is madness in this sickness-
so why am I so calm, so relaxed?
I see you here, with me, beside me,
in the dancing leaves, the singing wind,
the soft touch of the world is your being against my body.
If I were to drink the freshest water in the world
I would see that only you can quench thirst.
Love is as strong as death
and I would die for you, or I would live for you.
I'd sail away to the demon's land,
get hung on a distant star
and leave you with the stars that laugh and smile.
This world is not so dark,
for I have found its' beauty in the light of my lamp.
