Darkness (Jingle’s Thursday Poetry Rally Week 36)

Perfect Poet Award! nomination goes to http://liv2write2day.wordpress.com

Laying in complete darkness
Lacking shadows and movement
Stillness surrounds as
Tears fall from my eyes
From being surprised

Laying in darkened day
Lacking light to see the way
But seeing brightness shining
Illuminating the way

Laying in the darkness not
Knowing but hoping day to
Come, your smile I found
Your comfort I sought
Your hope I grabbed hold of

Just praying the tears of sadness
Never to return but for
Tears of joy to create
Rivers and streams
From puddles found
In darkness from nights
When days were never
Thought to come

    Sadness reflects the size of the well that once was filled with love. Nothing stays the same for long. One day, when sadness leaves the well, the walls will be larger, stronger and more able to love again.
    I read your poem today, on the 2nd anniversary of my brother’s death. It helped to bring old tears to the surface, where they belong. Now they’re in the light, they can start the job of healing the unmended wounds. Thank you so much for touching the dark with your words, and leaving room for light to return.

    • Ms. Peaches says:

    Hoping all’s well Peach Dear.. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I know this feeling.. I have lived this life in span of months many a times. The last time it had turned me into recluse.. My writing re- invented me..

    It is heart breaking to know that people undergo such strong emotional phases.. Just be strong and pray!!

    I wish you loads of happiness and joys for this Year and every year thereafter..
    Wishing you a beautiful 2011

    Love n Hugs
