Holding in my hands
Your gift bestowed unwanted
To me an affirmation of sorrow
Crucifixion of my heart and soul
Left dripping with melancholy…
Still I hold this sacred knowledge
Transforming this curse into
Blessings which frees my existence
Propelling me onward to embrace
Luminaria of a candle burning within…
Overabundance of purposeless
Realities masked by inconsequential
Addictive savoir-faire arrogance
Will not abide with me ever to
Destroy the elegance of transcendence…
At last seeing the truth I refused to
Acknowledge existed within your being
Eyes wide open encompassing with
Forgiveness granted for verified vision
Assumed in this time of darkness …
Someone I once loved gave me
This box of darkness bringing
Perspective retrospect revelation
Now I know this is my gift…
Freeing My Soul….

Barb this a beautiful poem …“What hurts you, blesses you. Darkness is your candle.”…This is absolute truth…Keep it up Barb
Tjhank you once again for your rating me as awful…so very kind of you.
Barb I have rated you 5 marks
whats going on ..
sorry uttam i am use to someone coming now and giving me 0… and when i looked it said this…. i was wrong, it now says 5… i apologize
Again I say I am sorry….it does make one a bit upset with what has been happening…I was wrong and Tony told me he would check into it and let me know what is happening….
I am not sure why I have made someone so angry with me to leave these… hopefully it will be settled soon.
Don’t take those ratings personal…some hell bent soul is taking pleasure in tormenting us…write your heart, with the best words you can find, and to hell with the nay-sayers…your words are beautiful, your thoughts deep and full of life, give them freely and the edification of the readers will be your reward. If that you cannot see, know that your wings have caught the wind and you have flown…
