Pearl of Darkness

Pearl of Darkness

A Poem by earthtohannah

'I love you my darling,

Please say you do.

I see it in your eyes,

And you know it too'


I sighed in despair,

How to say?

I don't love you,

Not to this day.


'Please my love,

Just look deep inside.

You know that you care,

You are one of mine.'


I narrowed my eyes,

I am not part of you,

You don't know me at all,

How can I love you too?


'Just give me a chance,

I can make it right.

Give me your hand,

We'll dance through the night'


Stop with this now,

I go my own way,

I care for you not,

Hear what I have to say.


I belong to myself,

I hold my own heart,

The key does not fit,

Into it's counterpart.


Because I am the darkness,

Who opposes the light,

And I am the evil,

Who duels with the knight.


So don't say you love me,

You have the wrong girl.

I am the colour of darkness,

Not the light of a pearl.

Hard to know what to say...this was lovely and carefully composed. So simple but had much to say if one looks deep within every thought you penned. I loved the last two stanzas the best. I truely did. Something about the "Not the light of a pearl" that just moved me there on that one. :)

Wow! Nicely done. It has a great flow and use of imagery, and I especially love the eigth stanza and the very last line. Great writing!

The flow of this was perfect, it wasn't choppy, and it created an image in my head.
The key, as OwlGirl said, also really captivated me.
Keep this up!

Wow! I love this! Especially stanza 7, I have been searching for a good key-heart rhyme for a while now and you found it! Amazing! This is a beautiful poem and is well written with a nice flow and rhyme scheme. :D
