Bright, bold and blinding
The daylight grows as the glowing seems to ever expand
The seemingly everlasting light becomes weak and dimming
What seemed forever lasting gives way to the darkness
The ever seemingly dark horizon holds a glimmer
The glimmer grows into a ray
The ray holds hope for a new light
beaming all over
some other girl
what’s she got
that I don’t
you sneaky cheat
no matter how hard
you try to keep those golden fingers
just above those lazy low flung
you can’t keep hiding
don’t make me beg
for just a few spare
minutes of your time
There are so many ways
To take your own life
Many think blades
would probably suffice
Focused on the dark
they never see the light
that even through shadows
still shine bright
Just like ying and yang
there are two sides
where there is doom
you'll still see light
When in doubt
look up in the sky
even when its dark
you'll see rays of light
Don't lose hope
yes, life can give you a fright
but keep that faith
and you'll see those rays
The poet in me seeks the lost soul in you
My pen never ceases,
Your glances never ending
The look upon your face, it tortures me
Crestfallen, brow furrowed, mouth turned down at the edges
I feel your pain,
It radiates off in waves
If you would just let some of those rays sink into me instead.
To lessen your burden would ease my mind
Even if for a moment or two
To see you smile if only for an instant,
Would make it all worth the while.
I never said loving me would be easy,
I never said time would be kind
I never said any of the things that I should have
And now we both pay the price.
You were always a challenge,
But I loved wiping the smug looks off your face.
You shot me a half grin when you said
So, are you gonna kiss me, stupid?
And with a racing mind and shaking arms,
I leaned toward the driver's seat,
And kissed you deeper than I thought was possible.
You plunged into the deepest part of me,
And swam through my rivers of blood,
Reaching every corner of my sickly body.
When I broke away from your soft lips,
I sat over my heart, my ribs crushing the damaged organ.
And before I could catch my breath,
You lunged toward the passenger seat.
And kissed me even deeper than before.
In utter disbelief, I opened my eyes for only a moment.
While our lips still danced in a close embrace.
The sun's rays streamed through your hair,
And illuminated the wispy, blonde strands.
And spread warmth to my numb limbs.
Ever since that fateful day,
I only saw the sun's rays
And felt their warmth,
When you were near.
