light

light

the illumination of your affection
always surrounds me
as a formless, invisible spectrum
taking shape in my lungs
as I breathe in your atmosphere
it blinds me with the hope
that the light of your love
will be the final glimpse
my eyes admire
before darkness shrouds my life

  1. To hold such love within you that it engulfs you to where you can find the power to hold on to the light of life to see someone for the last time before turning the lights out. The greatest gift of strength, love, and unimaginable willpower. Your last verse was such an impact poetic statement reminding me of Dylan’s “Fight against the dying light”, yours having such beauty to it my friend.
    Beautiful work for any eye to clearly see my friend.🌹

    1. Blushing, humbled, and nearly on the verge of tears. Your words have touched me.
      Flattered and so happy you liked this and took the time out to interpret this
      as you did. Your words demonstrated how well you understood this.
      Always amazed by you and the wonders of you.
      Thank you always.

      My best to Lady Sparkling.

      1. I’m not even sure that kind of “love” exists. Perhaps fleetingly, when two people first meet with powerful electricity between them. But, to have that connection for years on end, that’s debatable. Hmmmm …

    1. You are so sweet. My daughter had a great time in the car. She decided to go back to New York with the intention of
      getting her driving permit. Thank you for your precious words Caz. They always mean so much

  4. I love the open and closing lines. And that car…wow – nice. That’ll attract a chic, better than an empty shoe closet! 😉 Hope you’re having fun with your daughter. :-)!

                    1. PS – I just got the suggestion to put my ugly shoes out by the road to see if someone might take them for free. Just saying…but, it might be out of the way, it’s pretty far from the DR direction… 😉

  5. This is sweet and inspiring. I’m just back from my recreational outing. It was so unsafe out there that I had to be extra careful. Actually, I couldn’t find any safe place to run or to hide. Those beautiful ladies, I can’t say how many times I fell in love. Every corner was unsafe. But then, tragedy struck when I was leaving the beautiful citiy flooded with international beauties, I will never see them again. And then I thought of you my friend, thelovelyauthor. 🙂
