Black Hole

Poem By Tom Billsborough

There's a black hole
In my consciousness
I feel less whole
Diminishing
As it swallows up the light
Diminished by my lack of Faith,
Dark, dark, dark, I become
As the sun consumed by night.

In a distant park
A lone dog is heard to bark,
Lost, bereft of its master.
I too am lost
Cry out for guidance, Faith
As the gathering night encloses.
People with Faith, hold out your torch,
And bring me back to light.
You will not scorch me with your truths.

Comments about Black Hole

Very poignant and philosophical poem. Readily connects to one's intellect: As it swallows up the light Diminished by my lack of Faith, Dark, dark, dark, I become As the sun consumed by night.

Hi Robert. I've been trying to reply but ruddy PH keeps switching me to next poem! I shall try again! Glad to see you back too. I've been busy translating from the Italian, a joint project with Fabrizio Frosini. And 'm gearing my self up for a long poem but need to do a lot of research. You can always message me. Please do.
There's a black hole In my consciousness I feel less whole Diminishing As it swallows up the light Diminished by my lack of Faith, Dark, dark, dark, I become As the sun consumed by night. - - - - - When faith falters, darkness consumes.The poem is like a prayer to guide him to the path of enlightenment.

Evening Light

My eyes now follow
Trajectories of shadows.
Deep, dark green hollows
Beneath the elder,

I Saw You Often

I saw you often with your head bowed low,
As if in sorrow from some awful wound,
Inflicted long ago.
And even when you smiled

I Am Here

"Chacun en soi et son ami vivra" Louise Labé


I am here and you are there

Pacific Days

Washing the barrier reef, the Coral sea,
Brings fresh nutrients to the coral blooms,
Chrysanthemums in splendour
Where fishes of deep orange, blue

Love Makes The World Go Flat

Love makes the world go flat,
Sparkling seascapes sweeping out
From rolling downs of wide horizons.
Shimmering skies absorbing eyes.
