Desolate Truth

by Natalie   Oct 9, 2006

Glass shattered on salt tongues,
Words confined beneath throats,
Silent voices slurred cold speech,
Veiled tears rolled down cheeks,
Desolate truth far beyond reach.

Gold lingered on silky smooth skin,
Synthetic portrait failed attempts,
Bathroom odors filled the clear airs,
Reflections tormented weak mind,
Desolate truth reaching in despair.

Screams echoed within four walls,
Perfect box collapsed with thoughts,
Mirror image cracked surfaced lies,
Pearls betrayed destined happiness,
Desolate truth were final goodbyes.

    Again, wow! The imagery in this poem is amazing, you used the perfect words to describe this story. Very sad. I love how you used the repetition of Desolate Truth in the last line of every stanza, it made it stronger. Great work! =] 5/5

    The flow in this poem is notably better than the rest of your poems, though I don't like the word choice very much. I'm also not quite grasping the meaning. I don't think this poem is as good as your others... 4/5.
