**Pink Ribbon Black**


I’m a restless and corrupted one
Hoping for eternal darkness
And an end to they bright shining sun

I’m tearfully dry, embroiled by fear
Trapped inside my tired mind
Cold mountains close in and harshness is here

My sun set, back so many years
Got lost among my tethered roads,
Knowing the way of only not knowing where to go

Into the distance, a pink ribbon of black
I don’t know how it happened but I’m broken
Stretched to the point of no turning back

Ice now over tipped my wings,
The earth approaching fast,
This bird no long swoops and no longer swings

Earth approaching fast,
Spiraling, out of control I lost my grasp,
Earthbound misfit approaching fast

Pink dreams irresistible
That pink ribbon still so black
Pink ribbon black incredible….

I’m pulling back

    This is a lovely poem, but I could no help but notice several of your lines are vaguely rewrtten versions of the lyrics to Pink Floyds Learning to Fly. Still a good read (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
