Transiently Enlightening

Updated on June 27, 2012

My eyes opened again from darkness to light.

I seem to be searching for my good.

He lives alone missing.

He doesn't know I've been searching.

My other side found me.

I can't seem to shake him.

He is alone with me.

He doesn't know I've been planning to leave.

My eyes are closing again from light to darkness.

My eyes open again from darkness to light...

      With my eyes open, I see into the darkness

      With my eyes closed, I feel the light

      You are good. This is why I try to stay in the twilight , where the light and dark (good and bad) meet and I can accept them both in me; so to speak

      This happens... sometimes you do not understand whether what your are doing or planning is right or wrong.. then chaos erupts in the mind

      Nicely done!

      Its about that feeling that someone has in them of wanting to do good or telling themselves that they are a good person. But their in denial of their bad side like being selfish,hurtful, jealous,angry etc. They repeat this insanity every day.

      It seems to me that I should understand what this poem is saying because I like the way it flows and how the words are used for their own sake. I believe I hear sincerity and a gentle yearning,like a candle in a darkened room.
