A Soulful Sheen

Amazing poetry shared by a talented writer.

A Soulful Sheen

It began with a falling ember
Oh how the soft light begged for my attention
Shrouded in darkness I listened
Fixated, I watched the fleeting light fall like a leaf in the wind

About to disappear behind the lip of a well
I quickly moved to peer over the ledge
Illuminated, I gazed at my life painted around the walls
My circle of life; challenging, cherished and ever changing

Looking further, the depths remain hidden to the small ember’s light
A craving sets in for more, I know there is more to see
As this dawn opens my eyes to the story of me
And how much remains unwritten, the potential to be

As the light dies everything is flooded by darkness
Only kept afloat by the curiosity of the deep
Unsatisfied and wanting, there is only one thing I need
To once again peer over the ledge so steep
