ya know, i think dark poems are quite fun to write. however, i will write happier ones later on. ;D

Darkness that beckons me
Tempting me with promises
Mere illusions

Stars that bring me light
Only to falter and wither in the pale ebony

A dark melody whispers into my deaf ears
Silently awakening old feelings concealed in my heart

She beckons to me
Mesmerizing me with a dark, yet sweet song
Decorating me with the sweet scent of black roses

She has taken everything from me
All that I’ve cared for
All that I’ve loved.

Once more she sings
The song that lurks in each person’s soul
Ensnaring those who fall prey to her
Taking them captive, to submit to her will

Leaving them lifeless
No spark of life in them
And always with a heart decorated with black roses

Red roses that were once pure
Red roses that she tainted black
Decorating those once pure souls
With the black roses that were once pure

With her Roses of Black.

yuu shindemura

cool! very depicting scene of a poem, and by the pronoun "she" and the black roses, makes me think of the character i have: the black bride, Yume. she's in the novel black roses and a red rose that i have. ;)

anywayz, yeah, the surreal depiction of evil and frailty is seen here! nice!XD
