Pervert

***This is the first poem that I have submitted and been rejected on. I am actually laughing because I would have been more shocked if it had been accepted.***

Madness flies
with rose colored wings
through rainbows and unicorns
flights of fancy 
that ensure my insanity.
Locked in this world
of bright colors and niceness
oh,
such horrid horrid
niceness.
Out of me seeps blackness
vile and evil
a blight upon this fantasy land
turning the good 
into the malignant.
Time and time again
I have tried to run free
time and time again
I have bled 
perverting all that you can see.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.

    1. Thank you. I actually submitted to a magazine. The first time in forever that I had put my work out there. For me it was the courage it took for me to put it out there. I am glad that you enjoyed it. A tad different from my usual. Which is why I chose it. 🙂
