Darkroom - Poem by Waseem Sherif

Here in this darkened room
Everything is a wonder
No walls, no ground, no roof
Just hands, a pen and a paper

The idea is to bloom,
When all words join together
Lifts me up to the blue moon
A kind of "self-chase matter"

I'm going to cry very soon
For my soul can't take this pressure
Tears will be shaped by the mood
Then all things will be clearer

    This made me think of poetry like a flower that grows and blooms even in the darkest of rooms, a spark of light tearing the dark apart. (Report) Reply
