Dripping with deceit show me your scars.
Etched in your skin, my name bleeds through.
Soaked in memories veins pulse forth,
Tell me it’s my fault... these lines you drew.
These bleeding scars are the only signs of life,
Reflecting glossy cold eyes clouded by misery and lies.
Now seeing only beauty and desire of death,
leaving this world emblazoned in your own eternal fires.
Place all the blame... Throw away life.
Forget all the passion you so readily burn.
Live in your eternal happiness of death...
True lessons of life you shall never learn.
Glossy eyes looking back...
Deceitful, shameful, forget me, burn!
Confusion, realization now brings truth,
mirror before me revealing lessons now learned.
My own name etched into my own bleeding skin.
Torturous guilt and deceit dripping on the floor...
Final sin, my own life it sought.
Spirit, leave me... Let me see my sin never more
| I recieve a vision of almost-lifeless uncaring eyes staring at the writer of this poem, so good imagery. Keep writing, it's good stuff.||| Posted on 2006-03-17 00:00:00 | by NoMartyr | [ Reply to This ] || This is a good poem full of emotions and your use of descriptive words really give the reader some good imagery while reading this very powerful poem. This situation must have been very hard for you to deal with and to accept. I never really understood suicide but I guess when life is really hard it is easy to become consumed and overwhelmed to where you just cant take it anymore. But death doesnt seem like an answer to me, and you probably still have so many questions as to why these two would do this to themselves. So sorry to learn of this happening in your life. A very good poem about a very difficult subject. Take care.|

I am sad for you that the brilliance of this piece has developed from such a tragic situation though, you have written this on such a personal level - Its a great poem.

Time is a great healer for all - even the loss of a one true love. As far as first loves are concerned, you are right, the memory remains forever and the wonder of what might have been remains also - a very good write once again. Your structure and disciplince in your writing was still evident.||| Posted on 2005-10-13 00:00:00 | by Frank Maguire | [ Reply to This ] || Sa-weeet!

lines that showed me that. Nice job. Oh, in the first line of the seconds stanza, should it be "signs" instead of "sings"? Just wondering.
Have a good one and keep smilin'

Apart from not relating to it, it is a good poem and it is full of emotion, it pulls a person in (at least me). I would think about, maybe not changing the poem, but perhaps you could hint at the meaning in the description. I understand it's probably personal and that's what I mean by hint, " We'll say something happened between me and somebody." That sorta thing. If I'm totally, completely off, tell me. Any who's eyeball, good write, catch ya l8r.||| Posted on 2005-10-02 00:00:00 | by alittlebithippy | [ Reply to This ] |
