Eyes Wide Open

~**~ There are somethings in my mind Things even I don't want to find I want paint the town grey Instead of red In the ebony shadow of yesterday When did this these walls begin bleeding Like the lunar eclipse and the burnt red sky Red like your lovers lips. Dangling salvation in front of their noses Smelling black roses Time like tomorrow just out of reach Chrome stars a million miles away. Close your eyes from hidden scars You're color blind... I blow to the silver moon a liar's kiss Yesterdays memories so blue Contentedly picking up the pieces of today. ~**~

    Very touching excellent poem written by a very good poet. I saw that there's another poet named Margherita Russo she's only 14 and I know it would mean alot for her to have you read her newest poem if you have the time. Thank you very much.
