The Raven


Every night a raven visits me
its feathers dark as its future
every night a raven visits me
its eyes full of dreams
every night a raven visits me
whispering whispering
every night a raven visits me
telling tales of sorrow
every night a raven visits me
telling a forgotten memory
every night a raven visits me
its hart full of a wanting
every night a raven visits me
sharing words, that don`t want to be said
every night a raven visits me
every night i fly
my feathers dark as my past.

    Interesting take on Poe. Ravens do so inspire. Have you read my Peacock Solo?
