Black Tears

When my heart beats
It pumps black ink
Flowing to my brain
Effecting how I think

I start to weep
Black tears of rage
A pool of darkness 
Soaking my page

Your injected words
Have filled my veins
A heart colored black
Covered with stains

My life re-imagined
With love energized
The beat changes
New blood supplied

Color now returned
My heart fully fed
Now when I cry
My tears will be red

    When the cards of life are turned over, a surge, an urge of many can and does encompass our thoughts, emotions to reality. Especially when the cards turn from black to red. <*> I do enjoy writing dark poetry Richard. I also enjoy fantasy and many others and your right, I'm not a dark character. I simply love to let my mind wander, and it sure does at times. Thank you once again, James :)
