As Nature Recalls

Quiet desperation fills the lungs,
Of quaint songbirds,
As they swiftly trod along their branches.

Each with the majestic coats of royalty,
Catching golden rays of the sun,
Against the bleak background of a dense forest.

Watching them dance so firvolously,
Nature cues in a swift breeze
And one by one, leaves fall from the sky.

Instinct smells of soiled innocence,
When a pure act conducts distress,
Fluttering chaos drips upon the setting sun.

Once budding flowers wilt with shame,
The scene buries our two lovers,
Amongst the leaves that carried out their fateful deed.

"To risk nothing is to risk everything."

This is one of the best poems I have read today. The word choice and rhythm of this is excellent.

Nice! I like it, it doesn't give too many details about the act, but the nature details are awesome!

We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.

i really like this keep being awsome =)
