"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."
-Elizabeth Kubler Ross


Scarlet hair a mess,
burning scarlet cheeks,
scarlet heart pounding,
scarlet blood running.
Standing in front of the mirror she could only see the flaws outlined in scarlet.
But what a beautiful soul she held in such a fragile frame.
An angel trapped in death's grasp.
Glimmering eyes that held so much promise sank into transparent skin.
A pearl darkened by the ones she dared to love.
Every day I see her growing weaker, brittle bones and distant gazes.
I feel as though she is long gone, a ghost slipping between my fingertips.

The whole point is that she's a redhead and everything is that bright burning scarlet. Her hair, her cheeks, her blood. Everything is connected, and she dislikes it all. "The flaws outlined in scarlet." Each word was chosen for a purpose.

I think that you could have changed the word scarlet to something else but that's just me.

Wow. Thank you so much. This was actually an assignment for my creative writing class, we had to describe a person and this is what I ended up writing. I'm glad you like it because it's personally one of my favorites. I think it's very powerful.

Amazing. Incredible. I got chills reading this. I can't even think of words right now, it was that beautiful. The "untitled" title was perfect too. That was the reason I wanted to read it, the mysterious title and the intriguing photo
