My Crumbled Garden

May 25, 2011
The sun shines down on a desolate wasteland
Once beautiful stone walls, now piles of crushed rock
Lush green grass turns brittle and dies
A rainbow of flowers wilted row after row
Tall, magnificent trees, broken in the storm
Dust of the earth mere ashes on the ground
There was once a garden hidden in a secret place
Locked away in my mind, where I'd visit each day
It started as a seed, my hopeful seed of love, the day my eyes found you
As our liking grew ans slowly turned to love
So my garden grew more sacred and beloved
Suddenly harsh words spoken, albeit there still were few
Though for each one formed, a flower died for you
As time wore on few became more
Soon evil words were all I knew
Torment controlled my mind
My dreams just disappeared
I entered my garden one last time
I stood and watched as my sanctuary fell around me
Now I'm left wandering
With no escape
I've been trapped in my garden
Trapped within my mind
And though the once beautiful is now devastated
I'm better off here,
than I could ever be with you

I absolutely love this poem. The imagery you created was so vivid and relatable. Love how you used the vision of a garden and showed the evil in something beautiful. wonderful work!
