You are my light

For every moment,
you have shown me love,
I have had a million
doubts on me, questions
on my self-worth; why for
do I deserve this light,
but for every such night,
I also remember how goodness
of a heart, needs a receptive
soul, even a little dark,
to understand the price
you and I paid for this alliance;
I remember the verses I owed
to gods of broken hearts,
begging for a reason for my tears,
to show me a way away from fears.
And it led me to your fragile soul,
hard from outside, the smiles hiding
the loneliness of much wiser mold.
Now every time fate tempts me to stray
I cling and fight harder, to always stay
bound to your chains of trust and hope
I will love you in the darkness of soul.

 

Inspired by the Mini challenge at Imaginary Toads to use a line from Kerry O’Connor’s poetry  [ my inspiration is italiized in the verse above ] the reason I chose this line is because the moment I read this, I knew it felt so true for me and way I feel about my love for the light in ym life – my partner in this life.

Spread the love, spread the word ..

  1. Oooooohhhhhhhhh………..first, the beauty of your verse, inspired by Kerry’s line. Then….the questioning of one’s worth, the bane of our common existence……..lastly, the power of such a love, nd commitment. Truly lovely to read and envision.

  2. Oh, those doubts and questions, I know them well! Such identifiable sentiments in the lines:
    ‘I remember the verses I owed
    to gods of broken hearts,
    begging for a reason for my tears,
    to show me a way away from fears.’
