Black Crow

Black Crow

A Poem by Vin

A little something about a girl (the crow) that is swallowed up by pain and makes her way back out :)



Black crow, soaring with the beauty of our blue sky

Ugly bird, result of an angel fallen from grace up high

Deadly heart of pain, venom spiking the blood of each cold kill

Reckless hope of the broken, golden heart, faded dark and left to fill

Secrets for a soul, red eyes seeking prey to carry on living

Worn of love, tired of the care and hope it takes to keep giving

Black crow, she used to be a ray of light to steady all our pain

Claws tearing flesh, pouring down with the depth of the rain

Burning desire grown dry, newly refreshed will to escape this hell

Pair of wings charred deep from the fire, flames for the one who fell

Rot of the dead, the silent hum of this urge to come to life

Doomed from sweet Heaven, determined to rise , though with great strife

Quiet tragedy, bitter cry of a black crow in the night

Flying to our sky of blue, fighting her way back to the light

For Chinese, crows are the atrocious animal (bird). While for the other culture, crows are simply sad animals or birds that bring back a soul. With me being a Chinese, I sometimes despise and feel disgust at the presence of a crow; but as a writer, just like you, I like to see through a crow and to know what is the emotion contains within this black bird.

You've written beautifully with your wonderful words to speak the heart of a crow... even though it's only literally. Keep on writing! Keep up the great work.

I like this poem. The black crows are larger in Europe then USA. I was station in Germany for three years. The Black crows were very large. I kept my distance from them. A outstanding poem. Your story was amazing. Description and detail made this a pleasure to read.

I love Music, Photography, Literature and Art although maybe not in that order :S I love to laugh, I think it's the best thing we can do as people and I reckon no one does it enough. It is probably.. more..
