Lights shining in a quiet place
At a time when the flowers spring through the leaf litter
And there’s no need to fall in love here
No need to worry about anyone else
Until she must face the end of night
And return to the real world inside
But for now she can be herself in the quiet of the night
And let her stress go free
A little love is worth a lot
Because even a little is better than none.
And no one has quite an idea of what they’ve wrought
When a person who had no one,
suddenly has a someone.
And you don’t need to have romance in your heart,
Just to care about someone is quite enough-
After all, there are many kinds of love,
But to survive a person needs to receive at least one.
This post was originally published on my other blog, Out of The Hat. I shared it here because I think poetry is something everyone can appreciate- especially those who follow my author website!
The Towers stand above us,
With windows for them to see
To see everything I do
To keep constant watch on me.
There is no way to leave,
We cannot escape here,
We are bound in this place
Surrounded by ears that always hear.
And the sun may shine,
And the flowers will bloom,
But it will be worth to us nothing,
Because we are trapped here.
