Just tell me what you think and give me some ideas please. I'm not sure what people will think of it.

Tale of a Dead Girl

Empty gazing eyes of ice
Bruised pale white skin
Flecked with blots of red blood
A teenage soul
Caged in death's flood
Chipped black fingernails
A few broken ribs
Used to spend her days at school
Telling her best friend fibs
"I tripped down the stairs"
"Dad took me to the hospital"
Because he really cares"
Deep down inside
She knows these are lies
Her father beats her
Until the tough girl cries
Every day and each night
A shard of hope dies
She used to wear long sleaves
During the summertime
To mask the bruises on her wrists
There're abrasions on her skull
Caused by Daddy's fists
Now this troubled teen
Is laying dead tonight
Even though she struggled
She lost a lossing fight
He beat her so badly
That she lost sight of daylight
She lays there with
A broken skull
A fractured jaw
Blood and darkness...
Were the last she ever saw
Her world fading fast
Vision deminishing
Heart beat faltering
As this poem ends and unfurls
Always remember that this
Was a tale from a dead girl

  I really enjoyed this read. It reminded me of "Daddy's Dead Little Girl" by Whispered Chaos. I like your style, I wish at times I could get as dark with my writing. It's sad that many kids have to go through the pain and suffering of child abuse, unfortunately it's a very real situation. All in all very good job, I'm definitely a fan, and I hope to read more soon! :)

  This poem really had an impact. after reading it, i really felt sadness towards the girl, i could like almost feel her pain. descriptives like "Bruised pale white skin" and "A broken skull / A fractured jaw" really helped me see her pain. It also made me feel extremed anger at that goddamn son of a [censored]. After reading it seriously wanted to rip that dude's head off. It was really powerful

  This is a very sad poem, I like it though. The style s very creative. I feel bad for the girl, kids shouldn't have to go through that at home, it's wrong. I could visualize the whole thing word for word and got chills. You have great talent! Great job and I hope to read more from you soon!

  I won't vote on it, simply because I'm against the concept of scoring poetry, but this will be added to my favorites. I like imagery that I can feel, and this poem has plenty. Great job.

  Is lossing a real word? That line was a bit messed up. I liked this poem alot! I wouldn't say it was original, you get alot of poems kinda like that, but it will be something I'll remember.
These kind of poems, disturb me in that things like this always are happening. Most of them don't have any rememberance "o a girl died, that's too bad, yeah, hey whatchu want for christmas..." Also even if they do have a little something like a poem, how many people do you think will really care? Oh that was a good poem, now onto the next!
Hmm i'm being too dreary again...

  umm...i think i know who the dead girl is...the girl in ur icon?o well.this was a cool poem.all bloody and do u read my mind?
i liked how it was very detailed and it was written kind of like a story that should play in the reader's head.
poor girl,i didn't think anyone can be abused like that and not tell or do anything about it.i really hope this isn't a true story.
anywho...this was a very good poem of a depressing situation & what made it so great was how well it flowed.
Happy holidays!

P.S.i just re-did "kill me with a smile" ,and it kind of sounds like ur tale of a dead girl.
check it out if u want.
thats why i said "how do u read my mind?".

  For being your age, oh wow you have some amazing talent. I mean wow. It catches you right off, and the images... I started rubbing my arms when it said...

She used to wear long sleaves
During the summertime
To mask the bruises on her wrists

Really, that was amazing. Keep writing...
