546 (who?)
Rose blood
on her tongue
reminds her of yesterday's.
Lonely bones.
A heart's hoarded secrets,
love me pretties, &
scarlet letter dreams.
do these boys know
of the bitter winter
like a blizzard
in her veins?
The sharp edges
of half-empty
or the crisscross
of origami limbs?

Her eyes,
as deep &
as the ocean;

This is a marvelous piece of writing ~ I love the wording you chose, as well as the description of colours and emotions. It was very easy to feel as the narrator/individual felt; she's struggling with an inner battle, perhaps a battle between feelings, or thoughts. Only you as the writer know.

It's easy to see the view of this person, which is one thing a stupendous piece of literature requires.

I love your originality when considering this piece; it has me wondering, do you sell your poems? I sincerely hope so. They are truly wonderful pieces of art.

The impact was, and is, incredible.

Good job! :squee:

Your words mesmerize the reader.
You know your sentences and you never fail to use them at the right moment. The story in this poem is as real as any fueled emotion in real life.
Life, when a supposed beauty is absent, can be a cruel place to dwell in. I get the picture right in the beginning, from the blood, to the end of the deep ocean.

I'm one of those that often like to visualize the words that comes before, and what impact they might have on the outcome of the sentence. Wheither it's concurrent or not with the initial meaning of the text, is not essential. The abstract and singular meaning of lonesome sentences can create their own story within a story.
Like the "... crisscross folding of origami limbs?" for example.

The originality might be threaten by the "rules" that comes of writing poems and alike. At a first glance, it really didn't catch my interest. Then I started reading...
In any case, your work is very good. Life appears and disappears within this poem. And with the above arguments, the impact hits you in the face.

This is poetry, people.

Even as I read this,
the words ring about my head,
and twirling in its etherial dance.

This poem you wrote was so good, it inspired me to write that.  U just made me get over my writers block!

Yay!  I'm glad! :)
I love this; I truly do.
Have you ever heard the quote, "A semicolon is where a sentence could have ended, but didn't?"
I thought of this when I saw the beautifully placed semicolon at the end. Thank you for your beautiful poetry.
