Just a silhouette

Disappeared by shadows

It is in the dark

Just as feared, need you most



But your angel wings

Cannot fly here, oh so close

When dark discovered

Raptured by an unholy ghost



Your beauty, by grace

Heavenly heart remains

But yours was never meant

Love for me, earning stains



You would lift the weight

From shoulders, if you could

These are mine alone

Markers, holders, my un-good



What if evils set free

Comes at too high a cost

And the light you are

Becomes soon, something lost



Leave the dark to me

Ne’er abide in the gone

Whatever night I see

You’re my light to the dawn

  1. “Whatever night I see You’re my light to the dawn” brought me a few more tears than I could just blink away. Knowing my current emotional mire, being reminded that there is light at dawn gave me just a beginning sense of hope at a time when I’ve been feeling that there is none. Thank you for giving me those lines to hold onto!

    Brilliant Brad! A beautiful poem filled with images that seem at times to look back at you as you imagine them there, lurking in the dark…
    All the best,

    it’s nice when you don’t drag others down with you, but look for them as the way out of your problem…
