Hope~Laura Marie

"Concrete jungle,
held fast between these walls.

My home is a fortress
where no light shines.

In this world there is only darkness,
nothing bright bleeding through;

There, then, is the red!
So vibrant, so true!

From the darkness there is light,
from grey, color;

I had longed for something more,
I had once sought to bloom.

And from beneath the ruins
where I was searching, there you stood--

And once more I have found
hope, sweet hope
to guide me through."

Read more like this throughout the collection of poems penned from the heart of yet another aspiring poet; tales of love and of tragedy, coalescing to form a beautiful painting of the life of a lonely soul.
