Darkness In Bloom - Poem by Rijad Islamovic

Darkness in bloom
I'm closer to doom
This happy face
It's fake
Behind the mask
Full of tears there's a lake

Despair within me stays
An angel for death prays
The sunset takes away the light
For life, no longer I can fight
This soul is born to bleed
There's no hope for it's love need

With my broken wings
I take flight
Sinking in this
Blurring light
On the bottom
In the tears
Drowning in my
Darkest fears

For love
That I have taken
The sweet pain
Of a heart so broken
I crawled
And for life I cried
In misery
I have died

    You have skilfully expressed a manifest emotion amongst teenagers. I found the clichéd symbolisms representing your sadness befitting of the speaker as a person deprived of ‘love’s need’ may choose to withdraw from the positive attributes, or the creativity, of him or herself. This feeling transgresses to where you give in to ‘misery, ’ giving the poem a subtle time scale. These notions are drawn together by the underlying theme of ‘darkness in bloom’, a clear juxtaposition of nature, to express your isolation from a ‘normal’ state which the reader cannot question through the regimental pace of the poem. Carry on writing! (Report) Reply
