When light meets darkness

In the blogging world we meet new people every day. Some come by to leave a beautiful thought and don’t repeat the visit, others stay and share part of our hearts. Each of them we appreciate and relate to an experience. Recently I found a poetry blog called  “Inside the Mind of A Lunatic”, the name of the author – DeadPoet/ Sonam Mandal/. My first thought – “What’s with all the darkness here?”. Despite the darkness in the words I really liked every sentence, every breath engraved in the posts. The quote “When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.” – Charles A. Beard it’s the perfect description about  “Inside the Mind of A Lunatic”.  Comparing Sonam’s poetry to my writing/ mostly with a hint of a romance/, I wondered what will happen if light meets darkness, if romance collides with shadows? Will they manage to survive in one common land? It was most exciting to work together with her. Thank you Sonam!

Light and darkness

Let her relish the charm of angels,
As the Devil tries to snare her in his trap.
Make her surrender to the colors of rainbows,
While twilight seeps in through the cracks.

Water shining in the violet of astral eyes,
Shadows dancing behind the sparkle of her smile.
Souls growing kindness, hands swaying softness,
There lies the sound of emptiness in her laugh.

The bells of purple dawn shifting towards one new day,
Will she bow down to the darkness of the night?
Will she side with lights and knights?
Alas, we shall never know the secrets of a lonely heart.


"Garden of Eden" by Sonam Mandal

    I enjoyed the collaboration and how each line of your poem echoed DeadPoet’s and vice-versa. Very well done.

    Wow! This is amazing! I like the contrast of each line, it really just has an amazing flow. When I get home from work today I’ll definitely check out DeadPoet’s blog :) I really like the collaboration idea, one day you and I should work together :)

    I really enjoyed collaborating on this! Thanks for the opportunity! :D

    Enjoyed this the two thoughts joined as one has a nice flow, When light meets darkness the battle begins the poetry that comes the sounds of dueling lyrics. From one, verses you would think from the mind of a lunatic, from two soothing meltings of joined minds… nicely done :)

    Kudos to Blaga and Sonam. Each one of you writes beautifully and you each are beautiful shining spirits. The glow of collaboration has resulted in a wonderful piece of art. The vulnerability of a lonely heart is well illustrated her by both of you. Thank you for this gift.

    Happy day, Blaga …

    You blend together perfectly

    I loved the juxtapositioning…light and dark…one cannot exist without the other, I don’t believe.

    Beautiful collaboration.

    This is really weird Blaga. The poem I wrote for January’s Poetic License is just like your poem. I took the words of someone else (not necessarily considered a poet) and every other line were my words. I used purple and black to differentiate the two as well.

    Your poem is far better than what I did. It is great, as usual. Thanks for the link to DeadPoet. I will stop by there today.

    Have a great day!

      Sorry about the word choice, when I said weird I meant strange coincidence! The only similarities are that you and I both collaborated and I used black and purple writing. My work pales in comparison to yours.

    An excellent work put together by two talented poets
    the words speaking of light and darkness had the perfect contrast

    Welcome Blaga to One Shot we are grateful to read your fine work
