"It's time to nut up, or shut up." - Woodey Harrelson "Zombieland"

Such lonely stories
Are told with a knife.
They start on perfect skin
And end with taking a life.

Such tragic paintings
Are crafted with a blade.
The bright scarlet lines
Become scars that never fade.

Such lively souls are ended
With an everlasting choice.
They all could be saved
If they only had a voice.

This is so good! I like your introduction it was eye catching and kept me intact from the beggining to the end. Great Job! Suggestions: Add some more imagery other than that great job!

This is so good. It can get such a strong message across using only a few words. I also really love the line "Such tragic paintings are crafted with a blade." Great job!

She wants to die. She wants to disappear, to be remembered no more. She wants so terribly to be forgotten, all her mistakes, all her failures, everything. Her name to be wiped free from all record of existence. Because is it really existing when you’ve got nothing to show for your life?

Amazing as always Timmy <3 I think that it is something that too many people can relate to.  Amazing (:

"Reach for the Moon, even if you miss, you will land amoung the Stars."

I really love your passionate poem, it is exceedingly descriptive and I may be wrong (I unfortunately am more often than not) but it seems like you write from experience. Either way you are right, lonely stories are told with a knife. May life bring you better hands, King-Of-Spades

Friends are like potatoes. When you eat them, they die.

I like the line "Such tragic paintings are crafted with a blade." because I have experience how a blade can cover a canvas with one's blood.
