2017 Nov PAD Chapbook Challenge Day 26 – ‘Chasing the Light’

green-eyes

Today’s prompt: Write a ‘shine’ poem.

Chasing the Light

My spirit hasn’t gone out,
Its just dimmed a little bit,
So I dawdle on in the half-dark,
Trying to recall the feeling
Of full-lit awe and wonder
Before my mind went under
And to this shade of numbness.
But the memory of that light
Wills me to walk on and fight
And escape the empty of nights,
Reclaim that lustre lost to time,
So once again dulled eyes may shine.
