Darkness. - Poem by MaddiiAnne O'Leary

Who is out there?
All I can see is black.
Why am I here?
Who will ever know?
Why am I the blood-red tulip amongst the darkness?
The single angel amongst demons.
The darkness is bleak,
I'm the only ray of hope.

    A powerful little poem you have here Maddy. I like it a lot. maybe some other flower besides a rose could carry the same information. The rose is so overworked these days that now it is even lost in the dark. It's is an unintended funny, I think. A poet friend// RH Peat (Report)Reply
