Love ItLove It

In the absence of light

I see the sound of the light under the door

the wave of

light spreading across the floor

like a pool of spreading oil spilled from a tanker.

I feel that light around me

it is there.

But my ears pressed against glass

do not hear the light.

The sound of tootsie rolls

dancing above me

on a floor of tin

fills me

reminds me of what

I think the light once sounded like.

What noise it made

as I waited for my glass of milk.

As it slid under the door

my milk cold

the light

gone.

Can you tell me where the island is now?

    • i was in a really dark place when I wrote this poem. My first marriage was being destroyed. i felt like I was a failure as a person, a husband and well it was dark.

      My grandfather told me to find the light within.

      it became a poem, and later a path out of the darkness. Now I know that what happened then made me stronger now!
