Be The Light

It really is those small things that count
A simple thought or act of kindness
Can change a day before its begun
And leave a smile where before there was sadness

You may never know or ever be told
How much what you did could have meant
But in those days where darkness reigns
What to you was nothing made darkness relent

Though never thought through or perhaps understood
That one act alone could lift a weight
From shoulders weighed down suffering in silence
And in that mind threatening to break

So be that light not something that drains
Remember the gestures that lightened your step
Forget not the simple insignificant moments
For to someone else they’re memories kept


As I fall




As I fall from heights I could barely climb
I see reflections of me but in a different time
From darkness I pear and try to hold on
But the walls are shear and the images gone
I’m plunging still through unknown depths
In a chasmĀ I know well and I can never forget
It’s the hole in my head that opens at will
To steal the breath from any pleasure I feel
Yet I’m oddly comforted in that desolate place
Greeted by depression in it’s knowing embrace
With a crooked smile as it leads me home
From the break I took from being alone

Inevitable Circle


Understand no sound will escape these lips
Now as then and ever more
When troubled mind tries to break free
Find long practised skill to ignore

From hours it grows to overcome days
Suffocates will and all self worth
Leaving no path free from it’s torment
It’s deadly eyes glittering with mirth

A circle complete but for one link
In pitch black will become whole
Enveloping life in all it’s forms
Till surrendered a now beaten soul

At the lowest point of deepest despair
Unable to stand, broken and lost
A rise now inevitable begins once more
The shadow of darkness silently crossed




The edge of life

What now for light and the warmth it brings
In growing night where nightmares sing
When on the edge as always walked
The light is further than ever thought
Once comforting cool space in shade
Now freezing expanse where brightness fades
The balance lost that held together
Life’s changing moods that seek to sever
Fragile grasp on smile so fleeting
It starts to question the heart still beating

The Light

The darkness is never so black as when the walls are out of reach
The space in which you stand gives life to the demons you keep
Spawned from a mind that sees shadows without light
That leaves only shivers no warmth could ever fight

But brightness kept at bay by tightly sealed lids
Will always find a way to kill the darkness where it lives
Its heart is one of many and will never skip a beat
So even in the darkness this light is yours to keep
