“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski


This passion is trying
to ignite.
It's flickering like
my dying sight.
The rainfall starts out
kind of frail.
Showering
the nightingale.
Both delicate like
white eyelet lace.
Yet strong like my savior's
saving grace.
It can't be captured
like butterflies.
Though sometimes weak,
it never dies.

I wanted to write about my faith in Jesus. Although sometimes I struggle, I always come back to Him.

  Alright, I am going to try not to waste too much of your time with long comments. :P So here I will be brief and just say that “It’s flickering like my dying sight.” was a truly beautiful little phrase.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Because it didn't have that element you know..I've found it in the rest of your poems , the first line always pulls the reader in..this first line was similar to many others (from other not-so-good poems) I've read before plus it wasn't too suited to the title...That's what I think... but really there's "feeling" in this poem and that's what I love about it..

Haha, thank you. Could you tell me why the first line wasn't great though? I would really appreciate it, since I want to improve my writing:)

faith....Kinda like hope and belief...I wrote something like that a long time ago..this is much more amazing though..Though the first line wan't that impressive....It's a nice poem...plus I'm happy to read it, the fact that "it never dies"  :D
