Light song, dark poem?

Light song, dark meaning?

No, from that video, seems like light song, light meaning, one meaning. Not like this poem. This poem is … well, I’ll let you decide what this poem is for yourself. Enjoy!

Caustic Comment
By Maggie McGinity

I want to leave and sleep
Let my heart its secrets keep
(Let my heart its secrets keep
Awhile longer)

I see where this is going.
I know the ways of showing
Up
The soulmates have
In the lives of the people I love
(And every day, that love
Is growing stronger)

These troubles I tomorrowed.
Like b’loved books I borrowed,
Support of their pre-marked spines
Could never stay mine
(A silent scream as my heart
Takes me hostage)

So let me leave and sleep
Silence, distance keep
I know enough to see when I have lost it.
(I had no way of knowing
What the cost is)”
