Cherry Red.

In the corpse of graveyard

The wild dark night,

Is endlessly in chase of dreams

In pursuits of rays and glints

There is no light of hope

Yet, as winds trace the paths

Of receding waves,

Caprice dries all the tears

Happy - to be lost in the cloud lands

Blossom by blossom spring sprawl

Minute by minute twilight arrive –

Painting the rolling time,

A scarlet-cheery red

Bright and flauntingly gay - the skies

Solitude lays burry in the snow,

Dieing death of thousand years,

And after all the arduous departing

Finally the dawn has dawned!

Not exactly related to the theme, was just digging my old HD and found it. It is about not losing hope, sticking by till the dawn arrives and obliterate darkness, because in the end, it does.

  7. lol. how the hell did i miss these comments :D

    some how did. Short-term memory loss (who are you?) lol

    no, honestly. when i was young, my way of learning new words was to use them, specially in poems. now when i look back i realize that most of the usage, or the context in which the words were used was incorrect, but thats how you learn.

    i presume that you all liked the poem :)



Comments are sexy.
