The Eclectic Pen - Lost

Date Submitted: 12/29/2006

Genre: Literature & Fiction » Poetry
Words: 75

  A thousand jumbled words
mixed with endless silent screams
A day that's gone unheard
that ends in deadly dreams
Quiet looks of desperation
entwined with broken souls
A hundred secrets hidden
in the petals of a rose

Sadness seeping from the skin
left unnoticed on the floor
Misery locked deep behind
the needed tricks of a whore
A million unknown mysteries
disguised with phony smiles
Unsolved enigmas inside themselves
standing here on trial

A puzzle that's missing pieces
A white rose and a platinum tear
Look inside and nothingness
Is all you'll ever hear

Very good, Lisa. Lots of depth. One can easily get lost in all the possible meanings. Keep up your writing, please.
