Sonnet: For a Dark Child
by Aishika J

You’re constantly bombarded, to be fair

Is to be milky as porcelain snow.

Your somber skin is under stable stare,

And wincing under everlasting blows.

Your hands are marked by deepest vermillion.

You scrub them raw till they bleed scarlet red.

Your thoughts are twin to those of a billion;

The sun veils the stars, like yarn shrouding thread.

But to me, dark dahlia dims the lily white,

The sight of you leads me to brim with love,

Alone your charm fills my heart with delight,

And I would take a raven to a dove.

Remember this, my brave dark flower child,

You’re beautiful because you are so wild.

Hi, I'm Evan and I maintain this blog with my occasional musings. Apart from writing, I like being occupied with anything artsy, I enjoy the company of books and I like unleashing my inner nerd through occasional coding. My ideal day would be holding a book in one hand, matcha in the other, ears plugged and a cat purring on my lap.
