       Yes. A few of these lines rhyme. Get over it.
    For Devon, who just can't seem to forgive himself.

    dotsThe Scarlet Letterdots

    I'm walking around the puddles
    and making my way through the crowd
    to find you on the scaffold
    and rip that letter off your chest
    so that no more, no more
    will you betray yourself
    to nights and blades,
    to thoughts and mistakes.
    And I'm walking down the steps
    and gripping your wrist
    [wounds and all]
    and pulling you, pulling you
    toward that timeless state
    where no one, no one,
    stares up at you in disgust.
    [By no one] No more will you
    be taken away from your gift of grace.
    [By nights and blades,
    thoughts and mistakes.]

      wow, when i read the title, i thought of school, the book i had to read. But yeah, i liked your poem a lot better than the scarlet letter. It really does seem as if the story inspired you to write that poem for your friend, Devon. By the way, he should know the best way to stop the cutting is to forgive yourself. But that was an amazinly unique poem.
