THE SCARLET CREATION

Such a small thing; small as a fist…
But what guards our body’s and life’s tryst…

Enclosed in a room of flesh and blood…
It’s what protects us
From drowning into oblivion’s mud…

So many emotions, trapped inside
It’s what is,
between hope and despair,
A small, but strong divide.

Full muscles and feelings; not at all hollow…
But it’s what gifts us
The chance to enjoy our life, well and slow…

A blow to our body,
And we just sway…
But a blow to heart,
And our existence trickles away…

Our riches show our monetary health…
But it’s our tiny heart which reflects our true wealth….
These bodies and riches will give way…..
But the vivid outpouring of this scarlet creation…will be here to stay…

I really like this.  It's got great imagery.  I might take out a couple of the ellipses, because there are so many that it seems to me they take away from the overall effect that you're trying to give.  But it's really well written!  Great work--you should definitely keep writing.
