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.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
