Poor, Dainty Scarlett

Poor, dainty Scarlett,
Dressed in aquamarine,
Never got noticed,
And never got seen.

Poor, dainty Scarlett,
Eyes brimmed with tears,
For she could not be,
Better than her peers.

Poor, dainty Scarlett,
Pathetic and unseen,
Despised their endless ignorance,
More than she had been.

Poor, dainty Scarlett,
No one knows her name,
Poor, dainty Scarlett,
Her life remained the same.

    who is this Scarlett you are referring to? I'm not so sure I like the use of the name, because it contradicts the Scarlett O'Hara idea. but nice attempt in capturing the loneliness and I can feel her need to be noticed. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
