alvaro-serrano-133360It’s been a little while since I put up my last Poetry Place, but today is a special day after all… It’s World Poetry Day! So in honor of the day and the fact that my finals are now over, I have a new poem for you.


I hope you like it.


Collateral Damage

She held within her heart a love she could could not tame,

monsters in her mind of which she could not name.

And when the two came together, into the same budding rose,sebastian-molina-fotografia-101308

the dark collided with the beauty and she became the collateral damage.

From the thorns in her side and the voices she could no longer hide

screaming out in agony from the wreckage her heart had just left behind

with the broken pieces amongst the thorns that rose grew up to contain;

every bit of love and light it held countered with a little bit of pain.

Yet she kept going anyway, knowing there was light up ahead.

The light she created with everything she had when she finally let herself

get lost.


P.S. Just in case you didn’t know, there was a video in my last blog so if you didn’t get a chance to check it out, click on the
