A Poem by Scarlet Letter

An old poem of mine

An impenetrable castle
A mighty fortress
An eminent stone wall
A heavily guarded prison
Hidden from view
Disguised with a smile
Dismissed with a shrug
A cloak hides the tears
Constantly burning
Coursing through your veins
A shadow of your old self
No one knows you anymore
Buried in your loss of innocence
You try to hide your face
Running from everyone and yourself
Searching for a hope that's tucked away
Searching for peace
Begging for comfort
Aching for a light
Anyone to pull you out
Did anybody hear you?
Did anyone try to understand?
You're dreaming with a broken heart
Please, somebody help

Guarded by what? ha. I like this I think it's fantastic, your emotion within your words when you write. I love being able to feel that. Fantastic job!

I love art of all forms. The types I practice are writing, charcoal/oil pastels, music, photography, and more. Every time I look at something I see if it would be best as a picture, drawing, poem, or .. more..
