This is a poem about the feelings that occur when you discover you have fallen in love with a close friend.

Brightly Dim 

So brightly dim I hold my heart 

before your tender fires. 

Long have I walked, on broken roads, 

without a sole for comfort, 

to stand before this glorious flame, 

and absorb from it such gentle warmth 

as I have not yet known. 

One thousand miles I have come 

and with so little in pocket, through you, 

I have so much. 

So dimly bright I hold my heart 

before your tender fires. 

A spark does fly, and so ignites 

my soul with much desire. 

So should I release myself, 

my heart, 

and in this warm twilight dwell? 

To risk that which is so dear to me, 

my future I cannot fortell. 

So stand I silent through the night 

close to you I do rest, and pray 

that in some close time ahead, this fire 

I should test. 

So brightly dim I hold my heart 

a glow with your tender fires.
