Me Against The Light….

I stand in the darkness perplexed
Trying to find the switch to no avail
Have been asleep for days
Yet the sun does not appear
Round and round i go searching for a way out
Shadows linger waiting for my last breath
I hear sounds of freedom and radiance flowing from afar
Just as I see a ray of hope
Gloom engulfs me once more
Like a flower i wilt to my inevitable demise

  1. If there were no shadows, we would be left unaware of the light beams breaking through. If we were not perplexed enough to strain to listen and listen and listen, we would never hear sounds of freedom and radiance! Yes, when we become still enough to really listen and to really look, we receive enough light and enough encouraging sound to find our way through the shadows. Thank you for helping me STOP, LOOK, and LISTEN today

  2. This is a different style, I think, than usual — yet, very good! A great metaphor:

    I stand in the darkness perplexed
    Trying to find the switch to no avail

    This is really excellent and one of my favorite poems I have read this week!

  3. as your, “gloom engulfs me once more” in your creative reflection – in reply, i tried to imagine my way out of a darkest night – i enjoy this post!

  4. Again I noticed the upper case and lower cased i! If only I was any good at literary analysis…it does sound like a person in a coma. Trapped, and perhaps not understanding why.

    Good work 🙂
