Scarlet Life Runs Dry

Sound dances on the wind
The scarlet life that runs through our body
Bitter to the smell
Sweet to the taste
The lifeline that doesn’t make any of us humans much different
A beauty that’s capable of sending chills down the back
Those last fragile words echo when the scarlet runs out
A hoarse voice muttering it’s last laugh
A scream unheard floats into the void
Reluctance in the eyes tortured by death grow heavy and lifeless
Helplessness sets in when i feel your hand go cold
The last tears in your eye rolls down
Goodbye my brother i hope you no longer suffer
Scarlet life runs dry

18 years old been through a lot of tough times in life. Lost my innocence since young, Lost my future wife, Lost my bright future. Merely writing everything as a way to vent and be a voice for those who haven't found their voice yet. I didn't have a guiding voice when i went through my dark times and don't want someone else to be in the same situation. -LTHTS
