Ashes to Ashes


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

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;

And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
