black violet

she hides behind photos of children
trying to inhale their light
butterflies, flowers in summer hours
all help her feel life is right

her words however hold secrets
you don’t need to read very deep
good thing she has not the talent
to paint out the dark that she reaps

her white feather wings have all broken
now raven and closed for her keep
trapped in her corner, a cold barren cave
lives a wretched rare little black sheep

a paradox is all she can figure
alone and lost in defeat
yet defiant, defensive she rises
as provoked she lands firm on her feet

so what if the night takes it’s moon down
and stars falls like rain in her soul
still does she ride the powerful tide
allowing fate to tempt and unfold

she is darkness to me I dare feel it
she’s been wounded as much as she strikes
yet we live in denial without moral trial
secrets live in our hearts…and we weep

black violet
