Flickering Light

Is your light a shadow of a fire,
That would burn me down in flames?
Is this the reason why you hide away,
Whenever I want you to stay ?


 

No matter the emotions that sway me,
No matter the belief I entrust you with,
You always seem the same to me,
Irrespective of what season it is.

It must be the change I feel within,
The reason why everything seems different,
In this new light, I see you,
Yet you still feel so indifferent!

I wonder what you maybe hiding,
Inside your layers of dos and don’ts,
What is it that you are afraid of,
That makes you never let go?

I know not why you are constant,
When my feelings are coming to a rest,
I am scared to rely on your brightness,
What if tonight they switch off instead?

Is your light a shadow of a fire,
That would burn me down in flames?
Is this the reason why you hide away,
Whenever I want you to stay?

However it may end, I know not,
But I can’t seem to stop myself,
My paths invariably cross yours,
And everything starts all over again.


 

Sometimes I wonder what’s hidden beneath the surface and ponder about what could their secrets be.Β At the end of the day,Β No matter how well you know a person, they still hold the power to surprise you.Β

  1. Sometimes people’s roots intertwine inexorably. Beautiful poem. Do we even know why, how or when this intertwining happens and erases us from ourselves?

    1. Thanks a lot πŸ™‚ . I have wondered about these things for long now, and how without realizing some people come in as light in our lives but we are scared to give them our all. for everything that we knew always disappeared one day.

  2. Your heroine experiences a profound cahnge in the way she views her admirer. She appears to have definite trust issues. And she sees he radiates a light, but she is afraid it may shut off at any moment. Can she love, again? Perhaps. Wonderfully done.

      1. Unfortunately I am not on tumblr. When I started I wanted only my workouts and self promoting my training locally, so i understand. In my case it was a very slow 4 months.
