In New Light - Poem by Katherine Byrd

My heart was broken,
Shattered into millions on the ground, like glass.
To him it was a friendly token,
But I closed off and said ‘do not trespass.'

‘Caged inside of your sorrow'
Cried the birds of death and depression
Lurking in the shadow of my once fruitful soul; makes doomsday seem as if nothing to the morrow
Making my emotions go into an infinite repression.

Then out of the darkness, I see your glow.
The chains are lifted and the cage is destroyed.
I let my soul lift and float to the light of your beauty in flow.
My pain disintegrates as I feel you and reality seems deployed.

We have known each other for years,
But now that I am able to see you,
My yearning face is streaming with tears.
I am saved from hell; too good to be true.

My heart is ice, thick and tart,
And you are the blaring sun radiating heat
Oh Sun come into my treacherous aura and thaw my frozen heart!
There is no other existing source; so you shan't be beat!
