Dark corners are creepy, but this little haiku is beautiful and true.

I am so use to you writing funny little tid bits that whenever you write something deep and heartfelt I am taken back for a moment. I like the balance that this poem has, though slightly eerie it shows that even something that is meant to give off a sunny disposition can have a demon that dwells within.
a friend of my cousin hung herself just the other day, this poem is a perfect example of that girl. Wonderful, bright, beautiful girl but a deep dark secret that no one knew about.

Well, this is sort of the opposite of a beacon. If anything, I would say that the beacon completely went out, instead of wavered.

There's a lot of truth to those few lines. Good Haiku.

Probably especially when the sea is calm. The happier I am the worse a person I am..

oh that's beatiful. such a great mix of dark and light and dark, and the snippets of imagery, i dunno, i really got a vivid picture in my mind. nice!

A great image for doubt and confusion.
And although I'm pretty sure this is not your intended reading of the poem, it makes me think about how a caregiver (the one whose light is always pointed outwards to guide/help other people) from time to time needs to turn inward and illuminate/rest/carefor his or her self.

This gave me chills. The word 'lighthouse' contrasted with 'dark' and it made me think of good and dark thoughts evading. Seeds of doubt.
But I guess we all do, even the strongest believer has moments of questioning and uncertainity. Is this really the right path?

A very true sentiment. I love the comparison. It's quite fitting.

I liked the unique aspect of this because it really made for an interesting read, as it can't be compared to anything that's ever been written before. I also liked the way this invoked thought in readers because it makes the experience of reading it more important and meaningful.

Another good one!
I love the poignant simplicity of this.
