Weather you walk your path in total darkness or blazing light you are equally blind. But blend the two into balanced portions and your path becomes much clearer.

The Hope of Love

For an eternity I flew among the stars

Without a thought

Without a care

Alone but free

But it took just the merest hint

Just the smallest chance

It took just the hope of love

To bring me down from my eternal freedom

To this harsh reality of limits

For a billion years I walked this earth

Every year more painful than the last

Every month another part of myself died

Every day of my fruitless search my hope withered

Until the last year

Of the last month

Of the last day

Of the very last hour

I lie broken on the shattered precipice of eternal death

But as the last of my hope faded from my heart

It took just one kiss from you

To transform an eternity of pain

Into an eternity of love


  1. I have no word to express the beauty of this poem! It's a song, it's an ode, it's just out of the world. Esp.. the last two lines.. "transform an eternity of pain into an eternity of love." Just amazing.

  2. You found the words.

    Thank you for sharing them.

  3. Very beautiful. I am glad your quest at the end was successful. I so love the million years you walked the earth and the eternity you flew among the stars. Beautiful writing. Beautiful journey. Beauty in the darkness!

  4. It was very successful and worth everything, every moment of pain became as dust blown away in the wind. Thank you for your words.

  5. Beautiful the second time through, and would be as beautiful the thousandth. Really beautiful writing, Looksfar. Really beautiful soul.
