Shining

I am Darkness, I am shadow,
I am an uncried tear.
She is brightness, she is the glow -
Of sunshine ever near.

I am sadness, melancholy,
I am the voice of rain.
She is gladness, she is folly,
The recompense of pain.

I am torture, I am shame,
I am the touch of sorrow.
She is pleasure. Passion untame,
She is hope for tomorrow.

I am alone, and in my fear -
I am as cold as ice.
She is comfort, warm and dear,
A glimpse of paradise.

And yet somehow our souls connect -
In the lucidity of dream.
Where a magic only her eyes reflect -
Has made the Darkness gleam.

Thank for showing that even the Dark can love. Hail and well met.

This is great, I loved the way you went from your darkness to her brightness, and how in the end they could connect.

Michael, Michael, Michael... reading your poetry is like going to a symphony.... I sit in enjoyment and sigh.... wishing the music would go on and on...

like lines, never-ending,
constantly forming,
reforming and bending."

Oh Michael, I don't know when you wrote this, but it's absolutely beautiful.....what can I say, this has left me breathless....I'm in awe with the magic that you speak.

Your quite welcome DreamEvil.
For everyone else, thank you for the compliments.

As for when I wrote this, Femme, just be careful not to smudge the ink - it's still quite fresh.

He was mister Hot and she was mrs. Cold
He was mister Nickel-plate and she was mrs. Gold
He was mr. Snails, my friend, and she was Escargot
And so they lived quite happily, as everybody knows.

Excellent job, Michael
