    For One Dim Light

    shuttered windows
    darkened rooms
    save one dim light

    closed doors
    drawn shades
    secured in one corner

    swollen eyes
    deadened spirit
    stolid in solitude

    clamped mouth
    defeated soul
    surrounded only
    with one's own arms

    streaming tears
    drained emotions
    shaken with sobs

    curled body
    damaged heart
    seeks one dim light
    hope

    I love your poem. I love how you fit so many emotions and powers into limited words. Do you think sometime you could give me some tips on the art? I'll be keeping up with your work.

    I am trying to find the words to express how I feel in my journey to the last line "damaged heart seeks one dim light hope" A bunch of emotions try to be "line leader" but "hope" is the one who earns the leadership!

    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

    Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
