my mother said it's rude
to write in red, i said well
please tell that to my skin

and please, take a look at this
rose on my wrist, at the eight
pints that flow through the stem

(can't drag myself out of my body, so i won't drag myself out of bed)

Skin by Nobody

Suicide because your mother told you it's rude to write in red. Harsh.

I have rosebushes on my thighs that won't stop growing.

I love your writing, this is amazing. That's exactly why I made a folder in my faves specifically for you ^^

I agree with everyone else. I love how much you say with so little. :heart: It's so strikingly beautiful.

I like your poetry. You use very a verry little amount of works to say a lot of things.

Poetry I have to think about and read several times to get the meaning.

 

THis one makes me sad though. But that is because of the subject.

 

Keep writing!

yeah, you can't drag yourself out of your body, but you can drain yourself
you don't take up much space anyway, when the rest of you is empty
