this is pretty different from how i usually write, i really hope you like it though:)

lighthouse

such a big name for an isolated building in the middle of darkness

the guiding light for distant ships,

the guiding light for distant ships, the profession,

Important...

Important... but, lonely.

it's just a light to the sailor

A light,

A light, showing home

A light, showing home giving hope.

calling out throughout the nights vast skies.

But ever so forgotten;

But ever so forgotten; is the man sitting behind that light

living in silence, observing, listening

inanimate.

I've always been the one to observe.

ever so hesitant to act,

so far from being the light,

i feel like the lighthouse keeper.

neglected.

more like a symbol.

being a lighthouse keeper can be very lonely,

the prose says something about a lighthouse just being a guiding light for sailors,

but it is also a symbol

but the thing about lighthouses is, they have a door

a reminder that lighthouses are connected to the land as well as to the sky and sea

a door for the lighthouse keeper to go out,

...and to let people come in

it was there to prove,

that even the loneliest of souls,

were never truly alone.
