only the most
beautiful of creatures
live the shortest.

red roses and quivering
butterflies and other
useless things, like the
way she wishes on every star
she sees for a different
soul because she can't stand
the way it's rotting inside.

and it's only when
the thorns beneath her skin
start to bleed that her
monsters whisper, "have
you ever trembled, my dear?"

because they know
for every whimper that hides
faintly in the dark,
there is a pair of lips stretched
into a smile pretending
that all that is beautiful
is timeless and unbroken.
Hey guys, I'm not dead. I just can't write anymore. Here's a thing I've been trying to write for a week now. It's bad. I know. I just need to write something and post it. I'm sorry.

Sometimes life really isn't fair and wishes won't ever come true.

This is absolutely amazing! It is beautifully written, very poignant and emotive; but it never becomes silly or soppy. Beautiful. :)

I don't think its bad at all. Hug I think the emotion you've expressed in this is very powerful and I love the first stanza.
