poetry by j matthew waters

beyond the light

pretending this life-giving light
never once existed is like
accepting neither did I

wandering in the darkness
catlike eyes search for nothing
in particular but hopeful
to find something new

tall trees open up like umbrellas
protecting the ground
from metallic dust showers
turning into cosmic twisters
chased by space cowboys
riding sun-powered horses

life beyond the light is like a twin
searching for her lost soul
relentlessly persevering

january two thousand fifteen

  1. This is so good, philosophically and poetically. The powerful opening statement leads into the weird and wonderful possibilities of what is out there to compliment our existence. Love it – great work.
