The room is dim, but the light is bright.

A tender flicker of radiance is overtaking the candlelight.

It is the glow in her soul that defeats the shadows

And illuminates the opaque path of the night.

She is truly the light on the darker side of me,

And the ghosts and demons of my nightmares

Are vanquished by her smile

And her scent and her embrace.

Her whispering breath speaks of serenity

And in her eyes, I can see eternity.

There is a sense of belonging in her embrace,

And those three oft-repeated words are abridged in one kiss.

The faintest feeling is felt at first sight

Only to fade in a heartbeat

But the feeling can come back, and before you realise it

You cannot turn back nor do you want to.
A small poem I wrote after reading some romantic poems online. I later submitted this to my school's literary magazine. I had a little trouble coming up with a title (originally this was called the Brilliance of Love, but I decided to change it). I hope you enjoy it, and if you don't, please don't be so hard.

EDIT:

Let's fast forward to 2014. I'm going to be making some changes. Some big ones...but I can't bear to part with this old piece. So I'll move it to my scraps and post the update in my Gallery. :(
