myself and the light

hello...
its me
i'm still here
can you hear me?
hello?!?


i've been locked away for so long now
ever since things went wrong somehow
hello?


i still have my sight and i can see
the light is in here with me
we are completely surrounded by shadows and dark
it seems they mean to do us harm
hello?


we wish that you would listen
we think we can help if you let us
but you have to listen...
to us
hello?


are you at all aware
we're in the dark and kind of scared
but we really think that if you will
listen to us that we can still...
find our way out
hello?


you have not acknowledged us for so long
we realize that alot has gone wrong
but if you're open and try to see
that with our help just maybe...
we can all come out of this


i really hope you can hear these cries
because inside we're still alive
locked away, myself and the light
really think that you should fight


we know how strong the dark can be
without the light in here with me
i know i wouldn't be able to see
hello?... are you listening?


to the light myself has turned
"i wonder if he hears these words"
and to myself the light replies
"all i know is at least we've tried"

Beautifully Pink Floyd in all of its creativity. Rekindles memories of my struggle some decades ago, only, I grew wings and lifted myself above my destructive thoughts. Powerful!!

Very creative to have this dual conversation with youself" the Id and Ego (conscious and subconscious). We are enjoying the riveting breakdown of emotional rant and lyrical chant! Stop by and read some writes if you care to

Absolutely beautiful account of inner struggle... I love this!

To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
