Invisible Light--By Damon E. Johnson--United States

Invisible Light

Like a moth drawn
to an extraordinary flame, I
sit and wait anxiously for you
to somehow notice me
imagining your arms caressing
my entire world as we
gaze at the stars that shine
as if they own the night, and
tomorrow would certainly be ours
if only you could see me
in a different light.

Damon E. Johnson is an accomplished freelance writer and poet currently residing in Atlanta, Georgia. He is the author of three dynamic poetry books; Rhythm in My Blues, The Vineyard: Exploding Grapes, Forbidden Fruit, and newly published Addiction.


  1. I enjoyed this Damon,
    The light of ones desires, does not often match that of anthers. One of the many challenge's of life.

  6. Dear Damon,

    It is so good to see your poem getting a wonderful response. Too many times we let things slip thought our fingers--and letting someone go, someone wanting a different story, plays a lot in broken relationships. It's the me generation,always looking for the next dance. What an interesting perspective! Thank you for sharing your poem with us. Best wishes with all your writing endeavors.
