A Beautiful Curse

A Beautiful Curse

A Poem by Scarlet M.

I hope I will never have to write poetry again;

about you, about me, about us.


I hope I will never have to sit on my corner;

            my dying space,

            thinking about what could have gone wrong,

            what I could have fought for,

            what I could have said

            and what I could have done.


You see, my words are poison and my hands are cursed;

            capable only of creating tears

            and unhappy endings.

Love your last stanza, This is well expressed emotions.

I really like this. I can feel the pain that caused this to be written. I especially like the first stanza because this is how I often feel. Although poetry is a perfect release and pain does bring creativity, its a shame to have those things to write about in the first place. The second stanza is great as well, it is as if you have read my mind. I especially like the line where you refer to your corner as your "dying space". Also, the first line in the third stanza; incredible. Look, the whole thing I adore. It's marvelous, painful, well written, so truthful and incredibly relatable. An excellent write and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
