The waning light

comes from above

it knows what you are thinking of


It knows exactly when you hurt

it knows when you remove your shirt

revealing scars, revealing pain

when you try to remove the stain


That sadness left upon your heart

It knows when you will fall apart

It feels the crack begin to widen

and when the thoughts begin to frighten



the blade you hide beneath your pillow

How you sit beneath the willow

wondering right when he will go


Believe the waning light above

when it says you deserve love

ignore the darkness creeping in

someday you will rise again

  • Comment from author about the poem: The name of the poem is probably the exact opposite of what the actual poem is. Also, hooray, a rare rhyming poem! I'm usually too lazy to write these.
