Just wanted to share a beautiful piece of poetry sent to me by Stewart Macdonald…
A Trick of the Light
Into my darkness shines your light,
but I don’t understand it so I run and hide.
It must be a trap I’ll have to take flight.
If you could see through my maniacal sight!
I grow weary from having to hide,
So it shines ever deeper,
Growing stronger inside.
I try to conquer my feelings and fight
But not knowing trust I only take fright.
I trust you more than I’ve trusted before
But paranoia creeps,
And knocks on my door.
Whenever he beckons he’s hard to ignore,
At least I realise it’s my fatal flaw.
I’m calling for strength like never before.
I’m trying my hardest to kick and score.
But when I’m hurt
I break like a straw
If I calm down and trust you I’ll only want more.
So if you ask me to trust you,
Then I’ll say “I might”.
Haven’t you heard of a trick of the light?
emotions blind and so through time
I must suppress, depress and bind
my loving charms
these fateful arms
where only solitude wreaks no harm
— Stewart Macdonald
