Ashes To Ashes - Poem by Leila Hadi

Why speak
when words become weak
and everything you want is in the darkness
and you are forever alone

Happiness will never meet you
and your prince will never seek you
You will die unknowing
from your heart with blood flowing

Beating and pumping
all of your life into nothing
You'll be a stain on the soil
until dust in the face of turmoil

    A dark write that flows rather well. I hope that this is not how you actually feel about your existence. Hopefully none of your poem will pass and you will be sought after by a prince who will bring you great happiness. Stay strong (Report) Reply

    Dark facts and one mockingly laughed out question. A mockery contiued into the 2nd stanza where hopes are denouced as mere faerie tales.
    My favourite line is below; the s's really make the sentence spit itself out

    You'll be a stain on the soil 

    ...fitting. (Report) Reply
