There was a girl
an innocent girl
until the dark stole her
from the light

And the dark broke her

It washed the colour from her eyes
and replaced the green with gold
Her world bent over backwards
because she no longer saw the light
only the dark

And then everyone shut her out

When she smiled, it was no longer an innocent smile
Nothing could hurt her anymore
Because if it did
She’d hit back

And then the dark toyed with her

She played with men
She played with their minds
until they broke too
She was no longer innocent

And then she gave up a part of herself

She stopped feeling one thing there was left to feel;
guilt
Because she finally accepted
That the dark had stolen her
The dark had stolen her from the Light
A dark poem from the deepest, blackest part of my mind.
My second poem in six years.
I think I did okay with this one. Inspired by Beautiful Creatures. And Ridley's claiming.
Beautiful Creature belongs to Tami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
The words belong to me

Holy crap. I thought this was about Beautiful Creatures before I saw the description.

Very well written. Evocative!

This is beautiful. Sometimes the dark is the best place for beauty to hide. I would love to hear your opinion on my poetry.
