The Rose

Gray bleached the color from the day
all that was bright has gone away:
my mood darkens, fills with dismay
sullen and gray, sullen and gray.

Sounds muffled by walls within walls,
the rain falls and no bird songs call:
muted, in drawn, under a pall
a light rain falls, a light rain falls.

Mimicking the rain my eyes tear.
I shut all the lights, disappear.
Beneath the cover it's unclear
what do I fear, what do I fear.

Light brings clarity, all's exposed
perhaps to gray I'm predisposed?
A soft sunlight pinks the red rose
light and dark pose, light and dark pose.

    Marvelous dear Debbie, I agree with Cyndi, that last verse pulls it all together!

    Hi you! Like this cool form. Will have to scope the contest pages ... interesting! I loved your last verse most. Especially the second line. Well, It's 11- I closed my contest and now I'm going to eat a bowl of cereal before I stumble into bed. I'm exhausted, but things are finally starting to come together. Another week of big hustle and then I should surface again. Hugs, Love, from a red-eyed Dee xox
