SOUL ON FIRE

The rays of the sun shine bright through the beautiful arrangement of quilted clouds in the soft blue sky.
I look and try to admire what is around me.
As beautiful as it is, darkness fills my veins.
Darkness you have bestowed in me.
Once able to fully enjoy the powers of this world we live in,
I am now sheltered from it's beauty by the black smoggy pain you secreted within my soul.
What seemed so pure was a vast solitude of mockery on my love.
Giving love a bad name you've torn my hope into failed attempts to please you.
Pride in smashing one's beauty for life is not something to hold so dear.
Gifts given to you from the chambers of my heart were taken with greed.
With courage and perseverance, I will find my way out of the smog and find light once again.

Oh yes, one of my favorite sub-genres of CL missed connections! The angst-fueled bad poetry posts...where being overly dramatic is the ONLY way to be:

"I am now sheltered from it's beauty by the black smoggy pain you secreted within my soul"

Also, NEVER a good idea to borrow a Bon Jovi lyric whilst composing a poem...ever.
