Streetlight - Poem by Maya Hanson

Use a streetlight
to show me
that things are okay

the tunnel
between us
lit up from the inside

so that when
it's finally sunset
I don't have to worry about you.

Illuminate
the house where
both our secrets lurk

and close the door until I'm finally
always
never alone.

Maybe this house
can finally
close me in,

maybe
this streetlight
can be my salvation.

Topic(s) of this poem: home, loneliness, relationships

    Point Of Meeting In The Dark

    a lamp or candle would
    be classical more romantic
    a touch of coloured LCD

    lights more enticing
    creatively inviting
    styles tech changing

    but the streetlight
    like a lighthouse
    is an unmistakeable

    irresistible
    point of meeting
    for those in the dark...

    Streetlights Spaced Controlled Distances

    interesting illuminous solidity
    immobility in streetlight images
    rain fog or clear night shadows

    Electricity On Unnoticed

    streetlights are signs things are ok...
    at least we know the streetlight works
    electricity is running without problems

    Streetlight Images Luminous Immobility

    streetlights are signs things are ok...
    at least we know the streetlight works
    electricity is running without problems

    streetlights on poles
    at measured spaced
    controlled distances

    interesting illuminous solidity
    immobility in streetlight images
    rain fog or clear night shadows

    a lamp or candle would
    be classical more romantic
    a touch of coloured LCD

    lights more enticing
    creatively inviting
    styles tech changing

    but the streetlight
    like a lighthouse
    is an unmistakeable

    irresistible
    point of meeting
    for those in the dark...

    Thank you! Yes, there are different types of rhyme, most of my writing doesn't have traditional rhyme but I try to create a rhythm. I appreciate your time!

    'Use a streetlight
    to show me
    that things are okay'

    interesting the solidity immobility of streetlight images, a lamp or candle would be more romantic, a touch coloured LCD lights more enticing creatively inviting, but the streetlight like a lighthouse is an unmistakeable irresistible point of meeting :)
