Cresting the Change…

—–

Only in the darkness….

friends with deepest pain….

Crippled by a  loss

Can day be seen again…

—–

when dancing hand in hand….

the night is truly bliss…

But lonely with your wants…

That waltz is surely missed….

—–

Twisted roller coasters…

Rise above the ground….

Love the going up,

But hate the coming down….

—–

when sadness has its claws…

deep inside of you…

When nothing seems so bright…

the only color blue…

—-

Time to make a change….

Controlling what is right…

No need to live for down…

When you can live for light…

    Like this part, especially last two lines. 🙂

  2. So introspective and has great flow. Most will get this one on many levels. Btw, You are developing a very personal style that will touch your reader-audience all the more. Thanks D!

  3. I like the gentle ease of this poem, rhyme unforced, and the way you set up the contrasts (dark/light, up/down, together/alone) and then offer a solution in the final stanza. Swimming nicely! Have a great weekend, David. ~ Lily
