Touch The Scarlet

Post by mdmorash » Sat Aug 07, 2004 10:53 am

Just touch the scarlet of my heart.
Don’t say to me you’ll never leave,
Don’t play me for a fool naïve.
Just pierce my heart as if a dart,
Then from the wound I’ll come apart.
But for me may you never grieve,
Just touch the scarlet.

Now take my essence, sweet and tart.
Upon my head lay down your weave,
To cover now my hearts last heave.
Don’t ever play the martyrs part,
Just touch the scarlet.

How poor are they who have not patience! What wound did ever heal but by degrees.

This was a beautiful poem. I loved it. I read it three times. Awesome.
sticks and stones are hard on bones
aimed with angry art,
words can sting like all things
but it's silence that breaks the heart
