If I Am The Morning Star Premiere Contest Winner

Take my hand, darling, You've once told me that I am The dark nightmare's heaven shine — Well, you've told me more times Than you might like to hear For during those times, your heart Was a black hole of misery. But the black hole in yourself, my rose Will never be enough to drown out the light That I wish to impart to you. Take my hand, darling, And I will ensure that you never Drown in the ocean of doubt again. You will never again Find yourself with a bottle of pills And a final note in your hands. Take my hand, darling, If you call me your starlight, Then allow me to impart to you the hope, The joy, the faith, The light, That you yourself instilled in me. Allow me to ignite in you the Flame of life again. Take my hand, darling, If I really am the stellar light you say I am, If I really am your morning star.

I'm glad you thought my poem was good enough to come out on top! All I wished was to help people through it, as I have said, become their morning star.
