    dotsBlue And Reddots

    The rose you never gave me
    Died in my hands.
    "I hate you." I scream it.
    You don't understand.

    This room is a cell
    I've been in before.
    Dark love is a plague, and
    Death is a cure.

    Ghosts fill the corners.
    They're hiding in cracks.
    I gave you my heart, but
    You dressed it in black.

    Our strong, twisted fate
    Stands still on my chest.
    I'm so good at lying,
    But you are the best.

    These windows are guarded
    By blue and red bars.
    I stare at the traffic,
    Ignoring the cars.

    My mind is locked elsewhere
    As moonlight approaches.
    I talk to the ceiling,
    And sleep with the roaches.

    The rose you never gave me
    Resembles my lips.
    Blood runs down the walls
    To form fingertips.

    They grab at my throat.
    I'm such willing prey.
    And sure, you'll come save me...
    Just some other day.

      you know dear, i dont even know where to start.

    hey, you edited this? god dammit, no wonder i didn't understand everyone else's comments, im readin a different poem!

    i liked this, but i want to read the original too. damn all the negative comments that caused you to change it!!

    anyway. this is so good dear. the only non-praise i could give is that in certain places the flow gets thrown off, i'm not sure why, but some parts read better than others.

    "This room is a cell
    I've been in before.
    Dark love is a plague, and
    Death is a cure."
    this = my favorite part.

    "I stare at the traffic,
    Ignoring the cars."
    this = creative brilliance.

    my f***ing keyboard sucks.
    this = the end of my comment

      This poem was truly amazing. . . . . . it was so amazing that it goes on my favourites. This part was so intense and it was . . .. by far .. . . . the best part in your poem:

    This room is a cell
    I've been in before.
    Dark love is a plague, and
    Death is a cure.

    Ghosts fill the corners.
    They're hiding in cracks.
    I gave you my heart, but
    You dressed it in black.

    It had me thinking of so many different things. You did a great job writing a piece as great as this one. Nicely done.

    Blood runs down the walls
    To form fingertips."

      I usually can't read rhyming poetry because it is always so repetitive in the images that it uses, but this was fresh and hard to stomach, which is what all 'death poetry' should be. This was moving and extremely well written. Good job!

      I'm sorry, but this didn't appeal to me as much as to your other commenters. I didn't HATE it, but...maybe I was just unfocused. I found two things to be distracting in the piece - first was the poem within a poem - that everybody else liked. It pulled my thoughts away from the main poem each time I hit an italicized line. Then, the other thing that bothered me was your uneven rhyme scheme - some stanzas rhymed, others didn't. I would feel better with some consistency - preferrably no rhyme for this piece. The stanzas that did rhyme felt forced while the unrhymed stanzas seemed to flow naturally.

    Sorry, but this one just didn't do it for me. That happens sometimes. mae

      i love the feeling of being unnoticed/forgotten that this poem gives off! it makes you really feel sorry for the speaker *guessing it's a girl?* and it has a really good flow and wonderful rhyming! good write! goin on the fav. list

      YEAH!! First to comment!!

    Damn girl that was sad... But it was ver very good as well.. I loved how you put the whole accents with the sentences between each stanza, and i also liked what it had to say when you just read what was in the accents.. very creative, so its comin to my page for the faves...lol...
    And if this is personal, i hope that you feel better, with my best wishes..

      Nik, I also like the italicized second poem with in the first. The only thing I would suggest with those lines is trying to regularize them a bit. The first four such scan and read wonderfully together. They form a whole... mirroring and complementing each other. The second four... not so much. They become random. And it reads as random, not as cracked or broken to me. If they felt cracked or broken, it would be different, but then they would want, I think, to be shorter than the previous lines... not longer.
    "~Dye the angel's eyes red.~"
    the 'the' here reads awkwardly. PErhaps just write the line as:
    "~Dye angel's eyes red.~"
    Just thoughts. I do like the crafted and thoughtful look of this piece, moving it beyond just your emotions on a page to a piece of art.
