beautiful nightmare

You - Poem by beautiful nightmare

you made me believe
you made me grive
you made me cry
i wanted to die
you brought me hope
you brought me life
now all you bring is the touch of a knife
my blood it runs as
deep as the sea
what kept it pouring
the lies you told me
my hand it shakes
knife to flesh
cant believe im such a mess
so this is what you bring
the need to be dead
as my blood it runs deep dark and red

    Poetry hound,
    if you dont like a poem, keep out of it
    negative critisism just puts the poet off thier new hobby
    where are your poems? show us how it should be done
    and whoever said that everyone that posts their poems on this site are poets
    some people like to dabble, some people like to vent
    i would PM you but you are a coward who hides

    Thank you Graham, for your observation. It is entirely possible that the nightmare is beautiful (remember the blonde jokes) and that she will eventually come up with a poem of some kind.
    As for you though, I don't have any hopes, sorry to say, some people just don't have it.Sometimes it can be aquestion of IQ.

    Sure, keep writing. But try writing something original. This piece is so generic and has been submitted in slight variations by so many would-be poets that maybe we ought to just have one broken-hearted poem posted and then everyone can sign their names to it and we'll be done with it.

    Keep writing for yourself and ignore idiots like the one below
    All you need for progression is practice :)

    No wonder you need to hide your identity.
    What is this? A poem?
