The Greatness

The Greatness

A Poem by Wild Willow Blue
"

It's a lonely place, but the bubbles will help to ease that pain..

"

Cyanide and Happiness

Angels in dreams

Purple streamers in the bath

Forever in stitches and seams

 

I could tell you how the bubbles float around my scars under

my chin. How they clean the dirtiness from under my skin. I’ve been gone for

so long now it’s unreal. Like the papers that dropped

from the floor to my face, the letter from clean hands to lap. I’ve seen it all. Done

it all. Lost it all. Gambled my life away in the heart of a babe. Eyes too cold for blue

ice. When the bubbles stop floating around my scars under my chin. When they

leave the dirtiness under my skin. That’s when you’ll know I lost it all.

Thank you for your review. Very thoughtful!
Your poems certainally do come from deep inside your heart. This was beautiful...but I agree with Virtuosa down there..it does read as though somebody is trying to say goodbye to their life. Rawness comes to mind...vast well of emotion as well. :)

Beautiful poem. Sounds like a fancy suicide note but I like it. Deep and real.
Keep up the good work.

wow, i like the repetition of the 1st and last stanza, it makes it sound like a song and it sounds very fitting. The minor rhyming scheme also sounds perfect for this one. I've always liked he way you portray emotion and in this one its no different, very cool. Keep Writing.
