' The Glowing

So fragile in its radiance,
And yet you saw my light,
The shining all but vanquished
Like shadows in the night;

Unwilling to admit defeat
A heart just barely beating,
Hoping for that miracle
Rare and ever fleeting;

Somewhere in the darkness
You heard my silent tears,
Threatening to drown me
In the sorrow of my years;

A consequential prisoner
Within my solitude,
Awaiting with impatience
That perfect interlude;

Alit with fire and brilliance,
A rare and precious stone,
Through eons of eternity
On wings of angels flown;


Fanning recognition's flame
Love within me knowing,
Set my dying soul afire
And saved me by your glowing.

romantic or soul knowing...a lovely write.... Fanning recognition's flame Love within me knowing, Set my dying soul afire And saved me by your glowing.
Maturity, finesse and melancholy grace these beautiful words about 'happily ever after'. The Glowing poem could be interpreted in many ways (an art in itself) - from a simple, romantic love story, to a powerful spiritual epiphany (or perhaps they are one and the same?) All in all a splendid read. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
