you were not the warmth of summer, 
nor the growth of spring.
devoid of the colours of autumn,
without the sharpness of the cold of winter.
neglected from all seasons, 
you raged relentless, 
a blank canvas, 
empty for anyone to tarnish. 
Short and sweet xo

    Short but powerful, a gorgeous poem in a dark way. I love that last line--- "a blank canvas, empty for anyone to tarnish." It finishes off the piece perfectly.
