Sometimes There Is A Light - Poem by Peya Jakob

Sometimes There is a Light

Sometimes there is a light,
That shines on after pain.
In the eyes it is bright,
Like it has no recollection of rain.

Most I have seen are extinguished
By the agony of loss,
Suns that have been diminished,
The joy taken by sheer force.

They exhibit a wooden melancholy,
A giving up of sorts,
A longing for joyous memory,
As though they were reticent Ghosts.
