Scarlet

Folder: 
Shorties

 

I have scarlet dreams
but no one to tell
No one can withstand this heat
or look deeply into my eyes and survive another
unmaimed heartbeat
I know how it feels when it hurts to breathe,

 

but your body just can't help itself.

As always, you leave me stunned, awestruck and unable to breath! You're as dangerous as Rabbit! ;-)

There are people who will

There are people who will listen to anything and listen with compassion. You have to seek them out and want to let go of your pain. It is not as easy of a decision to let go of pain that has found a home within us for so many years as most people would think. We tend to have fears of letting go, as it requires changes to made in our entire perspective of life---and that can be quite scary. Follow your heart. No one can give the world exactly what you do---no matter how insignificant your life may appear to you, you are needed.

 

The poem is sad. :-(

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

Its funny,  I have been crying nonstop for the past three weeks and i so badly want to just dry up and stop. Maybe we could switch spectrums? So glad you got the feeling out of this one though. Thanks rabbit, so much.

Don't Cry

Don't cry so long

get it out in one big blast

of thunder and lightening

downpours of rain

that take away the need

to feel scarlet unshared

or fire too hot for the body

to survive inside joy.

Jus Groovin' With The Poet

I love the word scarlet, I adore the word unmaimed and the notion of an  unmaimed heart. I was looking for a synonym recently for untainted. Unmarred comes to mind aftrer re-reading this gem. The one line verse at the end has significance, but eludes me. Congratulations 1 of 1st top ten selectees. ~allets~
