You're My Ray of Sunshine

I write, read, crochet, sing, and play musical instruments. A sucker for learning.

Poem #4

My nights are pitch black

Suffocating and controlling

I crawl face down on the floor

Most of the time

Crying helplessly

Searching for an unyielding foot

To hold on to

One that's standing firm on the ground

One that can lift me up even with just a finger

I wait

I wait until you came

Your face half-lit

Your words few

Your actions hidden in sight

Your gaze expressionless

Your love cold and unfelt

You are my ray of sunshine

A single ray is enough

Yes, it's worth a thousand for me.

Yes, Ms. Brenda. That's it

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on October 16, 2019:

The loneliness one feels hurts so deep inside that when there is just a tiny ray of sunshine we are happy.

Good read.
