Black

Ah, the color black.

The fear, the sadness that people can't crack.

The demons that people will never see.

Alas, these demons will never set us free.


Yes, the color black.

It's the color that all people don't lack.

You see, my friend, every single thing will be let go.

Soon, we will all be consumed, but we will never know.


The people out there, saying that we should never give up,

They are too optimistic. Soon, they will also be damned.

For their optimism will soon doom them, into illusions

Of not seeing their end, their conclusions.


Soon, we will drown, drown in the color black.

Drowned and floating like the letters on a doormat.

We dance, but we don't realize,

We are fleeting like scared, hopeless mice.


We are born to create, yet we made ourselves to destroy.

Life is our playground, and the earth, sky and sea are our toys.

We will destroy it eventually.

It's all a matter of time, but do not hurry.


We still have a lot of time for the death of everything.

Come one, come all, for the free-for-all, the prize is nothing.

Life will go on, so why reject the color black?

After all, it's the one thing we always have.

Fabia Scali-Warner: Wow. This works reminds me of Allen Ginsberg, and at times even Prevert. The arching storyline is interesting, but I loved the care given to every verse. What a gem!

Kayla: Wow I love how the author wrote this story. Most because I loved poems and sad stories. Yeah I've read a lot of sad stories but this? I really felt every pain. I cried to the point that my tears could be bottled. Good job

Gianna kho: It was amazing and i learn a lot about reading this book

Claire Kimanuka Rukundo: Special book and I like it very much

Mackenzie: This was a big switch up from "Texting him". At first, I was unsure about the poetry but now I think it helped tied the story together. With each poem, you got to see a part of V's heart while it was not blatantly said. The relationships in this were so thought through and were so great. I loved ...

brOKen_gurl_here: I loved this book, it was sad, emotional, and relatable. I really liked the poem 'friends'. I think that one was my favorite! I hope you write more poems! Thank you for writing this book!

LoveVixxen: I can't wait for more. Great start, I'm hooked.

L.J Galez: Beautiful trauma, this is when all the what if's will remain what if's and eventually after reading some lines you'll realize the answers that was left unsaid to your questions are just there, finding a soul is easy, but finding a perfect match to bond with your soul is a lot harder when you c...
