A Bed Of Tissues - Poem by Scarlet .....

I lay here
the bed
tissues by
my side

Cannot hide
used tissues
new tissues
matters not
confused inside

My nose is red
from such
instead
my tissues
by my side

Imagine all
the trees
whom cry
shed there
bark
tissue by
my side

I cried untill
I could no
more

Tissue by
my side
there is
nothing
left inside
my eyes are
as jade
won't fade

So dry

The feeling
unto my soul

The well alone
is full to night
a tissue by
my side

    Hmm, i read some others of your poems, and they kinda seemed like you were forcing dark lyrics to come out. This poem i feel is the first i've read to have true meaning and feeling behind it. It is very good. (Report)Reply

    U.U.,
    I don't know if you have noticed,
    but, you are a little less of each these days!

    Pain and pleasure go about in a cycle. No one suffers or no one enjoys too long.
    The girl U.U. will have her better days sooner or later. The whole world is praying for her.
