Tragic Sonnet for Shakespeare Day

That’s who I always wished I could have been
A glowing girl, all beautiful and bright.
If anyone had looked, they might have seen
The colour underneath the black and white

It’s too late now, I’ve lived a life in grey
The more you live the more the darkness grows
But death will tear the last of it away
Until my colour ultimately shows

Once “I” am gone, I’ll finally be “me”
Plant poppies, cyclamen, and rosemary.
