Friend

Alone and desperate
Searching for the words
Sweet music in my head,
The sorrow of birds.

The walls are closing in on me,
The room lit with shadow
But my hope has left me
Naked and alone.

I search for a path,
One that's right and true,
But I've lost all hope
In what the world can do.

I search in the darkness
Through my perceptive mind
For any ray of truth
Any word that's kind.

Drops of despair fall down my cheek
As I stare into the glass,
Silently waiting in the quiet
For these feelings to pass.

Glaring into the tunnel
All I see is smoke,
My vision is cloudy
As I begin to choke.

In this foggy vessel,
I begin to lose my sight
When suddenly I see it,
A radiant image of light. 

This figure is Angelic,
Calling out my name
Beckoning me closer,
Reaching from my shame.

I stumble as I draw nearer
But she helps me to stand
I feel my body numbing
As I take the angel's hand.

We begin to walk together
This angel by my side
I know nothing can hurt me
Because my faith is deep inside.

The angel stops the demons
From lashing at my back,
From spitting wicked words
And maintaining their attack. 

She guides me always forward
Keeps me on the track
I leave behind the evil
Never to look back.

She pulls me to the sunlight,
Out of the darkened hole
She puts light back my heart
And raises up my soul.

She makes me happy
And she helps me through
Reminds me of the good things
I once knew.

Although heaven-sent,
She is of the earth
She is my best friend;
I know what she's worth.

A true friend knows
Your song and its chords,
And can sing it for you
When you forget the words.

She'll always be there
As a listening ear
A shoulder to cry on
For all of your tears.

She'll be by me always
She'll always be near
This is my heart
She'll always be in here.

    Obviously you have found a dear friend. Priceless! Very nice write! Just 2 comments "what in the world can I do?" "lashing my back" or "slashing at my back" just thoughts to consider. Light & Love Debbie Guzzi
