Out! Damned Stain

Use the words above and create poem or prose.

Clip this diaphanous garment from me
The lace is mottled with shades of red
Out, damned stain!

Dissonant purse, be gone! 
I demand iridescent cloth
To cover me in crying weather 

Alone wrapped in velour
I write with ink no more.
Tears cause words to run
And that's what I'm posting

Oops! There is a "think" missing after don't.

It's crying weather here today. I am a fan of succinct poetry and ecoomical use of the wordle words.

You used most of them. Those were some tough words.

I love the way you have used the words softly to create such a deep blood stained story
