A Lonely Bird (Blogophilia 40.6)




In a dream I was a bird
A sad, lonely mourning pigeon
On a flowering gargoyle
Fearing beauty 
All was ugliness to me.

Eyes closed to the light
Only grey I see
Rain off the branches
Running down my back
Every day was just black.

Joy is Sorrow's negative
Fears go with dreams. 

That is your lesson for the day.

  8. Man, talk about a low point in an otherwise dismal day...
    Still, I enjoyed this immensely. Melancholy is my game.
