In the distance I saw you there
Forgive my silly childlike stare
But lately I’ve become so aware
Of your whispers of light

You shine brighter than the rest
It’s incredibly obvious you’re the best
All night flight I’d gladly invest
For your whispers of light
I’m not surprised when I arrive
To see such brilliance you’re so alive
Your other suitors can’t seem to survive
Your whispers of light
I’m getting closer to your flame
This journey has been somewhat insane
I'm expecting the miraculous, girl I finally came
To your whispers of light
I’ve been warned you’re more than clever
That closer to you means closer to never
To hold you in that moment is to regret forever
Still I'm drawn to your whispers of light

To see others fall only makes me stronger
How can I resist your angel glow any longer
Reached out to touch couldn't have been wronger
Your whispers of light made this moth a goner!

~Lyric Man

Note: This is a song about how the bright light of infatuation blinds. Like a moth attracted to the flame. Sometimes getting closer to your target is dangerous, even fatal :)

Lyric, I love this! What a brilliant write about that intoxicating attraction - like a moth to a flame - where one can't help but get burned. Every line is a poetic beauty especially your last two - love the use of 'wronger' - it just seemed righter! Warmest wishes my friend.. ~Susan

truly a title of worthy. life can be dim or bright, you enhance the dark moments of sorrow and dim the bright overwhelming stress of emotions. a real asset to poetry soup readers.

Dear Chance Summer: What can I say? Lovely and definitely You. I recognise your voice that's been away more than a year. And definitely missed. Welcome back dear Friend. And bravo! All the best then, Leon.

Hi Chance! I've been going through some of your poems and I can definitely say that these captivating poems written in lyric form flow from a silver pen which I had grown so used to a couple of years back! ~ I like the added short notes, too. Regards // paul
