Claimless Torch

I am submerged into your darkness

As I wait for your return.

Holding on to Amber claimless;

If I let go, you'll feel the burn.

You lit a torch into my vein,

But did you kindle it with care?

As the empty sky desists its reign,

Will it distend my hungry flare?



   If some of my latest work seems dark to you, it is because I am doing some medieval themes for my graphic arts business. This one is complete, but I'm having problems putting it in my blog.
I'm good, though! Much love, Ivy

    The vivid imagery gives this poem an eerie feel which is fitting for the poem. The questions work well to add depth and give the reader something to ponder. Creative title. Thank you for sharing talent with us and for your kind comments on my poetry. Keep on writing! Karen

    Sometimes the darkness is beautiful too, especially since it makes the light more contrasted. Enchanting poem -Sara

    Ivy, hi! I don't find this read dark, but one that reflects a heart's yearning and questioning. This could be the questions many ask if they were to let go. The tone is perfect and the sentiment clearly conveyed. Very well written and good to read more of your work. Michael
