you once said to me
that you weren't "anybody's light"
and that inside you, lived a dark dark soul-

I am torn in confusion
by the things that I know
rocked in the middle
by the things that I love

about you

my judgement of character
relies soley on insight,
intuition
and belief

you've done nothing to prove me wrong.

And this is a poem to a person I love
so I guess this is a love poem-
but you don't love me
so what does that make
these words
these feelings
these thoughts led astray by your warmth,
your sincerity
your brilliant bright blue eyes?

Within you
there is a light that shines
a light that caught my dreamer's eye
and held it close
it doesn't matter whether you believe me or not
because it's already pushed out there
by this meager heart
already been stated
in my meager words....

And perhaps I am too hidden
to let you see me
perhaps you are too blind
to really see

I humble myself
when I try to write these feelings into words
and I humble myself
when I try to make you understand

to make you see...

You're right, you know
you're not anybody's light
but neither
my love,
are you anybody's darkness...

Oh Christina... Your verse is so beautiful. I don't even know what to say, though I have something share:

There are chords in the hearts of the most wreckless which cannot be touched without emotion. -Edgar Allen Poe

For Myself, I live,
Live intensely and am fed by life,
and my value, whatever it be, is in my own kind of expression of that. *Henry James

Thank you again, one voice... and what a lovely Poe quote that was...
alone tonight, I can really identify with that sentiment at this moment.

thank you for sharing it.
