In the Dark

In the Dark

A Poem by cassandra violet

Even in the

Darkest hour

I’ll never

Lose sight

Of love.



Love’s dusk

Shines brighter

Then the

Sunrise of

Mere lust,

The gold of

love's sun

is anything but

The rust that

Grows on

Static hearts.


And if I

Didn’t believe

In love

Then I’d lose

What I have

Come to know

As what is

A part of

My soul.


So give me

Midnight, turn

Off the lights

And I’ll watch

The world

Be lit by

The candlelight

Of love’s stars

As their light

Glides and guides

Me through

The night,

Waiting with me

For the

Smiling sunrise.

Wow... the assonance was stirring. Reading this poem aloud was almost like rapping, but not in a bad way. It just flowed with such liquid rhythm... spectacular. Well done.

I hate this part. This is the part where I try to tell you who I am, what I've been and what I want with every single last milimeter of blood dancing in my veins to become- the person who my heart bea.. more..
