Black Dawn


I was in a flawed world
Searching for perfection.
I had no sun or moon.
I lived in a blemished shadow.
There was a sea of confused people
Running like a river,
All searching for it too.
Even in the darkest sea,
I found a way to be alone.
Then I crashed into you.
Even in the darkest sea,
I found a way to see you.
We smiled and watched all the fools,
Watched them search blind for nothing.
Perfection isn’t flawless.
Perfection is flaws in all the perfect places.
I don’t need light to feel your hand in mine
Or to see what is important.
I’ll stay in the darkness with you.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
