Love Lost, Darkness Found - Poem by Ebone' Ingram

The first time, your mien touched my heart-
that is, the first time I saw you.
When I saw you again, we were well acquainted
and I knew for a fact that I loved you.

Brooding in the deep shadows, I'd recall
your light that I'd been blessed to feel.
And out I stepped, out of that darkness
into a haven that was beautifully real...

And there I wait to reach you again,
to feel your touch, kiss, anything.
I long to know that you're still with me;
that assurance would cause my heart to sing.

But as new twilight numbed my fingers,
all the world was veiled in sin.
And though I hoped and longed for your face,
I knew I was alone once again.

Come again! Rebuild my broken heart
and fill it with happiness from above.
My cries each night fall on deaf ears,
but if you do hear me, send your love.
