The Light

The light is bright, bright
Too bright
It revels and reveals all our
Secrets, all our
Scarring and the lines
Carved by stress and tears and
It blinds too, this light
Prevents truths from occupying
The lands of our hope and dreams
Bright shining bright
Lighting up our faults and flaws
Portraying both demons and angels
Equal and unflattering
Bright light
Demonstrating our beauty
Our lies and our love
Too bright
How it warms and feeds
Brings us to our knees
Ever bright this light
Cleanses us of need
Feeds us deep with greed
Give us shadows though
Give us cessation
This light is bright, bright
Bring us some respite
Bring the peace of night
For the light
Is so very bright

After reading many of your poems, I can say you write very well. I wish I wrote poems, but I'm only good at writing prose.

I also wonder if you speak as fast as your lyric self. Your poetry is very fast paced and filled with strong images. It's almost as if I were talking to a damn machine gun.

Very enjoyable, congratulations!
