My Dark Your Light

Good morning! Happy Thursday!

Today I’m up to my neck in paperwork. It’s going to be a long day but once I’m done I get to write.

This poem is about recovering from tragedy and how the victim usually blames themselves and some even see themselves as the dark side of life afterward.

#MyDarkYourLight

What do you do when you love something you shouldn’t?

I walk through the days

Drinking the light

Like it’s toxic love

It’s ecstasy

It’s beauty

Covering my dark like a painting

As you light my world

My shadows come alive

They breathe

Living once again

In a world that cast them away

I run through the night

Enjoying my freedom

My thoughts of you are dark

Yet my heart beats for you

Your name slips from my lips

Creating a warmth in my soul

It’s not fire

It’s something else

It’s joy

Happiness

It’s love

I explode in rage

Realizing that it could never last

For how could someone, so pure

Love something, so dark

I fall to my knees

Dying, a little with each breath

Thinking of you

Have a beautiful day.
