Focus. A poem.

You are my focus.
Without you I am a blur,
a hazy remnant lurking
on the periphery of this
sun-scorched existence.

You are the prism
through which I shine.
You are my multiplicity of light,
an enchanted, technicolour spectrum,
illuminating my darkness,
and showing me the way.

I’m a writer who loves tabletop role playing games, poetry and (you guessed it) writing. Occasionally I have something to say...

  1. Love the energy of this, but to play devil’s advocate: what happens when you define “you”. In English, we teachers call it the ubiquitous you – the undefined in a story that leaves the reader wondering. It is insinuated here that ‘you’ is ex-lover, but what if eliminated the ambiguity by replacing ‘you’ with something tangible? Is you God, stability, purpose? I am rambling, sorry. It’s the teacher in me. I’ll be quiet now.

    1. Hi VJ! As ever, you are very insightful! You are quite correct, the poem is deliberately ambiguous. I originally wrote it about a special woman, but then realised it also reflected my love for God. It can be interpreted in a number of ways, and will mean something different depending on the reader’s interpretation 🙂
