A Raven

A raven flits
Through falling rain
Its grating caw
Echoes life’s pain
The day turns slowly
To velvet night
The raven blends
Into dark light
Seeking shelter
Finding none
Abandon hope
Happiness shunned
Day again shines
But now without life
A dead raven carcass
Finished with strife

Brittani Bowden Claim this poet

My name's Brittani, I'm 15 years old, and I've been writing poetry for the last few years. I have written around 90 poems in that time. Not entirely sure if that's a great feat or not, but I'm happy with it nonetheless ^-^ And, of course, I will be adding and adding and adding and- okay, you get the point- to my "archive" (isn't that an awesome word? :3) of poetry for as long as I live...And maybe even after O_o Anyway, to whoever reads my poetry, I hope you like it and can be inspired by it. Any comments, suggestions, or criticism is greatly appreciated. P.S. I am fairly psychotic >:D and also comletely random. CRANBERRY-SAUCE!!! Anyway, enjoy my poetry :)or not...You're choice. haha more…
