Light

The most intense love
I ever experienced
Was when I was at my lowest
And it wrecked my
Entire being,
I was convinced I had found a
Soul mate,
Someone I could save,
Had to save
(Instead of myself –
At the expense
Of myself)
Now I see the truth:
At my lowest low,
I connected not with
Something lighter,
But with that with which
My darkness resonated
Someone I could save,
Had to save
(Instead of myself –
At the expense
Of myself)
And just before I drowned
In darkness,
I remembered:
I am
Born
Of
Light:
I belong
To the maker
Of
Light.
