Scarlet Damsel

Poem by: annaarcher

Summary

This is not complete. I still have editing and revision to do, but for now, this is it.
This poem, if you can not tell from the writing, is about a love triangle. My poem, Damsel in Distress, is about a girl who is in love and truly cares about her significant other, but of course, there is another boy trying to take her (because he loves her), whom she really cares for.

Darling,  Darling,  it's  almost  alarming  how  much  you  can  fool  my  senses.
The  girls,  the  girls,  how  they  go  jumping  like  dogs  over  fences.
And  you,  oh  you,  you  only  jump  for  me.
You  go  climbing  trees, and  setting  my  mind  free.
 
And  there  you  go,  with  a  kiss  as  warm  as  snow.
My  kiss  sweet  as  candy, 
a  scent  lovely  as  my mother's  favorite  lavendar  purfume. 
Your  embrace  pleasant  as  a  tiger's  thrash.
Those  James  Dean  eyes  are  as  good  as  trash.
 
I'm  crying,  I'm  crying,  you're  as  good  as  mine.
The  girls, those stupid girls, try  and  copy  my  every  move,  acting  as  though  they  are  mimes.
But  I'm  dying,  I'm  dying,  I'm  his  and  only  his.
And  here  I  stand,  just  trying  to  make  sense  of  all  of  this.
 
Dear,  here  I  am.  I'm  the  scarlet  in  the  garden.
And  there  they  stand,  asking  for  your  pardon.
Yet  you  love  me,  and  they  all  can  see.
But  I  love  him,  which  you  can  barely  believe.
 
I've  got  my  red  dress  on,  and  my  lipstick  to  match,
Make  up  what  I've  made  up,  the  scars  will  be  patched.
but  by  the  end  of  the  night,  smeared  half  down  my  face...
Back  and  forth  in  my  room,  all  I'll  do  is  pace.
 
You  are  my  price  charming,  the  one  I've  prayed  and  waited  for.
I  am  the  damsel  in  distress,  but  also  the  antagonist  of  sorts.
But  I  guess  you'll  be  my  eternal  lover,  the  lover  I  can  never  hold.
I  wish  "I  love  you"  were  the  last  words  you  were  told.
