Poem – Dear friend

Dear Friend


Best friend, Angel white, pure feathers on a naked skin.

Soft to touch in mind and spirit,

cleansed like a baby’s whim

you danced so well with the devil

evil brushed off like dust

sparkled the existence of your pure good

It Flowed in dear memories of a child kept calm

told to stay strong for the beautiful ugly

the light that shone through your talent

Kept dark minds aware of  the innocence they once bore

And the innocent child that you are had to  pay the price for that darkness

  12. This poem, made me zip my mouth but also it stands wide open haha, what a beautifull poem! Don’t find darkness understood though, cause then you’ll never see a beautifull bright halo! ❤
