A Light In The Fog

The long nights were dark and the short days seemed darker
The sun tries to rise but even the moon's glow is brighter

I'm just searching for something to give me a sense of hope
Even though I'm another typical fool who should just learn to let go

Eyes   grow   dim   as   time   goes   on
It's   a   sin   to   be   this   strong
-
I'm going through life and only seeing blurry faces
It's too harsh when all forms of trust are blind

I've walked this world and noticed nothing really changes
Every step seems futile and every dream is a sleeping lie

All   souls   cannot   be   shrouded
All   hope   cannot   be   abandoned
-
I needed a reason / To keep me breathing

So please pay heed to the pleas / I don't want the dim lights to leave
-
And then I caught a glance of you and instantly knew
That I gave up too easily, thinking you wouldn't have come for me

And because of you- my outlook had improved
And tears of joy could only drip helplessly

I   yearned   be   held
And   the   darkness   to   be   healed
-
Everyday- I will savor every single second
This is a long time coming; leaving behind this lament

Everything has been brightened and colored
There is nothing more that I could have desired

I   know   everything   will   be   alright
Because   I've   finally   found   my   light
Don't you ever give up
All forms of hope are never lost

This poem is written for my book project titled - "The Other Side Of The Sky"
In volume two: Two Of A Kind

Believing In Soulmates
Believing In Soulmates

You are not an illusion
Nor are you a mere reflection
Though I can't explain what I'm feeling
I just know that you make me want to start believing

Dreaming inside of a fairytale
The reason to smile

Fantasizing within a dream
The reason to believe

Maybe those so-called miracles are truly real
The love stories do have their sequels

Though it's near impossible to try and get rid of this doubt
But I know that I will eventually succeed, because you're here now
Just when I thought I was lost, you came around, then I realized I was found
-
You have to be the other side
The missing piece that fits just right
So
A Moment Of Love
A Moment Of Love

This is a perfect chance of weakness to finally tell you that this isn't just a crush
It's not all about lust; I've always wanted to confess to you that I care about you so much

I apologize for being hesitant all of the time; it's just very hard to say you're my one true love
I yearned to say it out loud, but the words couldn't escape my mouth, that's what my fear does

I tried to say it to you in every lucid dream, that's how strong these feelings are
And I found myself waking up to tears of joy, because a true sense of hope is in my heart
-
I want to win you over
And I will never give up
Because you make the dark b

Any chance I could use this and any other rainbow artwork you have on our non-profit website as backgrounds for advertisements?

I'll have to say no, as much as I hate saying no. These are not meant to be backgrounds, they're just art covers. Sorry.

The alternating rhythm between the italicized and standard font is very nice, and the long breaks allow me to feel the flow of the poem.

The picture is also nice, although the transition between the blue and purple is a bit rough.

Heheh, yeah, I had a hard time finalizing the poem, and also the picture, the blue and purple looked almost exactly the same shade, so I decided to lighten the blue up a bit, and I might've lighted it up a bit -too- much, but at least it stands out now, lol.

I'm glad you enjoyed this particular piece though, it means a lot. :D

Hope can be seen, and felt. Hope can be given, and taken. Finding what we desire, yearn for what we need.
