Light In The Dark

Light In The Dark

1 min 180 1 min 180

You couldn't believe that light

And darkness could coexist; so you

Cast me away; yet you watched the stars 

In the distant ebon nothingness

Every night; but still, you could not

Notice the metaphor the universe

Was trying to portray.


I watched you; adoring the stars

But like them; I was the light entangled 

In the web of darkness; and the shorting stars

You smiled at; died trying to escape.

But unlike them; I was not ready;

To die, just to fill your emptiness with hope;

Instead I concealed myself beyond 

The clouds, until you longed to see me again.


But you despised the clouds

For they enshrouded your tainted sanctuary

Yet they hung; under the blue sky

Sadly watching you breathe; and weep

I too, saw you and felt the compulsion

To come to your aid; to show you

That all you lacked was always

Right in front of you; but you kept on,

Chasing shadows.
