Upside Down (Picture Prompt #4)

Perverted shadows
ebony wings stretched out
encompassing
entwining
this upside down world.
Reflective
opposite
I watch with envy
at those who live up there
no knowledge have they
of us in the mirror.
We are…..
sin
envy
jealousy
black darkness in your soul
vomited
into our reddish tinged world……
we are the secrets never revealed.
Daylight reigns
in the world above
while I live in perpetual gloom.
Shattered
my pieces broken
as I loose thee
you fly within boundaries.
My scarlet tears colour the sky.
Shadowy blackness
it steals
submerges
sucks dry
energies
used to keep me tame.
Ravaged
nothing more to say
desert dry
despite rain falling up…..
falling down…..
drowning my sorrows
are you here to stay?
Beautiful dream
beautiful desire
beautiful
I find it beautiful
even if I am the Upside Down.
April 7/19
