Locked in the Dark

I am a graduate from a diploma in applied writing, and I have found that my calling is poetry.

My first poem

I have spent so long locked in the dark that I struggle to find the light,

I feel like I spend my life alone feeling the pain of endless suffering,

but then you came into my life.

I no longer feel locked away,

I finally feel accepted for who I truly am,

you didn’t ask me to change,

you like me just the way I am.

When I am feeling down you turn my frown upside down,

you make me smile,

you make me laugh,

but one thing for sure,

you don’t make me cry.

I never quite felt this way about anyone before,

and yet I can’t tell you,

because I am afraid.

Afraid if I tell you,

you won’t feel the same.

So I will keep my feelings locked up inside.

I will admit this is very hard for me,

but I will be strong,

and move forward with a smile on my face.

Because as long as I’m here,

I can’t be put down,

and cannot feel pain.

Feedback welcome

Please let me know what you think of my poem, I would love the feedback
