Deep Within (+1)

Kurt Philip Behm

Deep within the ashes,

a last ember burned alone


A final spark to light the torch,

to guide your spirit home


Deep within the ashes,

a last beacon in the fight


Refusing to let the darkness take

—your vestige into night


(Villanova Pennsylvania: February, 2018)



The Eagles Eye


Like a telescope in focus,

the words get sharp and clear


And magnify within the thought,

a feeling oh so dear


Each letter worth a hundred times,

what yesterday did know


New verse now burning laser bright,

—eternal in its glow


(Villanova Pennsylvania: February, 2018)

    There are very few poems that take away my words. This one did. I am blown away and all I can do is make it a favorite. I also printed it out to put on my wall so I can read it over and over again. Nuff said!

  • Seeker

    Ample reason to never give up, never give up that ship. Beautiful Kurt!

  • LaurašŸŒ»

    Thereā€™s comfort in
    knowing that thereā€™s
    always that last spark
    within us! Beautifully
    expressed, Kurt! Thank
    you for sharing!
