There's twenty five million people in the city tonight
They each breathe fire, like flames they ignite
They're a city of saints, they're monsters, they're warriors born to fight
Although diverse, their hearts beat in time to the city of lights

I was told when six
lighted smokes show up for miles
during a blackout

Toward home, Christmas eve
lighted candles on tree bough
pierce through dark windows

Moonlight can become
bright enough to cast shadows
beneath my movements

#haiku   #darkness   #night   #light   #lights  

Color yourself indigo
Go on i dare you too
Sad but laughing buckets
Cleaning the floor with light

Oxy clean you are something
Modern poetic verbal stumbling
Left only to throw dirty shirts
Into the closet - hurt my feelings

See right through you

I still find myself
feeling your skin
in the spaces between
bed-sheet creases

and if
missing you is like
swerving into
oncoming traffic,
then tonight
I’m sleeping
in the road.

The light of all lights.
Matthew Bourgeois

There are darknesses in life
And there are lights
You... are one of the lights.
The light of all lights.

I love you.

Oh, how it feels to be light.

Oh, how it feels to be light.
It is how I feel with you;
Light, light, light.
You, the rays of the sun,
Circulating me.
As I catch them below your perfect reflection,
Glimmering under saturation.

shines a bright brilliant light

Dark gray abis
you peer down
pure darkness
but out of the dark
shines a bright brilliant light
but here the catch
the abis is my life
and the light
well thats you

Outer light strikes the surface
But inner light strikes the soul
Through which we may give an end to darkness
