Emo Rainbow

the blade is silver
the blood is red
the sky is black with words unsaid
the tears are blue
falling down
the dreams a dead and wilted brown
the bruises are purple
from the fight
hope is a faint and distant white

I love this! I'm usually not a fan of rhyming but here it's just enough and it simply but vividly painted a picture in my head. Sad yet beautiful. My only wish is that you add to it or expand on this topic because it seems like you'd have so much still to say.

I used to cut, and wrote this poem one really bad night, then buried it in the back of my closet. Now that I have everything straightened out, I feel like I should share the lessons I learned from my experience.

Just from the title, i didn't think i'd like this. I thought it'd be just another emo stereo type...but i have to say i was pleasantly surprised. I really liked it! You've got some talent! Great job.
