Scarlet Letter

Scarlet Letter

A Poem by Frieda P

I am a marked woman
I feel it upon my brow
a scarlet letter of  'blood' red
Veins injected, methodically rejected
first a tiny seed implanted
ejaculated into divinity
mystical of woman's loins
apparition of an innocent soul
should I have not been born, 
what then of darkest lusty desires
violins played in C Sharp
music's short lived lullaby
now orchestrated by a mad conductor
plunged into the darkness by familiarity
could you not have dipped into the honey
hallowed urns of empty souls
I wear this badge, although not visible
it's left its mark for eternity
forevermore I shall remain Scarred

I won't dare try decipher this, cos I'll get it wrong. (Remember?) :)

However, the atmosphere and language is dark and pithy, pure and flawed. Stimulating and intense, FP!

If you like, you can change 'left it's mark' to 'left its mark'. You'll be saving an apostrophe and doing your bit to cut down on carbon emissions!

I slung a few question marks too, they get stuck, and you need to have them sugically removed. ;-)

I never read the book, Scarlet Letter (yet) but from this poem, I seem to get a gist of the story...

"ejaculated into divinity " That's so awesome I might just plagiarize it.

Your welcome!
A powerful book. I like the way you gave life to the words. Scarlet letters were a mark to punish and create fear.
"I wear this badge, although not visible

Thank you Coyote, that's what it feels like to me too.
A very good write, Frieda. We are all marked one way or another, visible or not. It's how we continue in spite of it or because of it that shows our true character. Well done!

Serious, Strong, and Powerful. Can feel the pain and weight throughout this piece. A very strong end to it, forevermore I shall remain Scarred. Sometimes we go through events in life that do this to us but the strong bounce back and I wouldn't say move on, but they do move past it although the marks still show below the surface. God bless you Frieda P, you're a brilliant writer.

This is the kind of scarlet letter that leaves one permanently scarred on the inside where others cannot see it, but the one who must bear the shame of it sees it every time they think of the one who branded them.

The one who bears it feels the pain of it much more than the heat of a branding iron - it is now a part of their soul, robs them of their joy, spills into each part of their being, and all the while the marker sings of song of satisfaction.......how horrid, so very, very horrid for the victim!!

Your write singes my heart!
