Salt and Light

by Amanda

God where are you,
What happened to your light?
Was it me who put it out
Or did you leave me tonight?

I can't feel your love
Filling my heart
All I feel is pain
We're so far apart

I can't overcome
This thing that seperates us
I've tried so many times
I need you so bad Jesus

I know I pushed you out
I know that it's my fault
But, please, I want you back
You are my light and my salt

Come back into my life
Tonight this is what I pray
Because I turn to the knife
Unless you're there each day

**The part about Jesus being my salt refers to Matthew 5:13

This is an excellent poem. I am not religious at all, but I can relate to seome degree to the feelings of hoplesness.

Thanks for taking the time to comment on my poem, and keep the good work coming!
