Writing In The Shadows

Who am I to know?
The music eerily seeps into my soul.
The day was just by diamonds and by
diamonds they shown.
Now in the darkness my light has flown.
The diamonds have grown cold without light
locked in a box of oceans to cross.
I find solace in the words of strangers
I never meet.
How complete, when empty flees
leaving behind a hole in your soul.
Not even the cold can fill
...only the touch...the touch...not near.
Sunshine and diamonds..
love and space divided by time.
In my my time...

    I find solace in the words of strangers I never meet. - Poignant line... the solace that can be found in the works of art by others. Sometimes (or often) the tightest sense of connection with another human happens through his or her writing, or other work of art.

    Must be a special comment because he is a very special poet. He thinks
    he dont know. But this poem says everything about him. The touch, the soul, the words all in a locked box to oceans to cross and share. In shadows only the diamonds that seek the sun, the bright of light for be what it is and always was. Diamonds and love.

    How complete when empty flees, leaving behind a hole in your soul. Midnights Voice to me it never left a hole in your sole, it exposed vast grand canyons that do not inhabit earth. Majestic beauty which cannot be carved on rock, not but the wind nor by water, and neither by geology. And these canyons are filled with Ruby's, stones that shine of various Colors, many moons, more than one sun.
