Into The Unknown.

by Courageous Dreamer   Jul 24, 2009

A pallid rose
with edges outlined
charcoal black
accentuates burned
hope--shaped by
expired dreams.

Unspoken secrets
entwine in spiral
formation; sealed
beneath the heart's

Twirling its fragile
stem betwixt
trembling fingertips;
its shadow appears
below, atop

An effortless toss,
and it's set afloat
into the unknown;
swimming freely--
while shifted by
rapid currents of
a waterfall.

    The second last stanza is my fav. No wonder you win with this one. It's different and in no way cliche. It's sad in a twisted kind of way with a very dark era. It delves really deep and gets to the core. Excellent write again.
