"I love you. I love you. I send this message through my fingers and into his, up his arm and into his heart. Hear me. I love you. And I'm sorry to leave you." -Jenny Downham

In this garden of his
she alone still stands
amongst silence and heartache
because her keeper has gone away.

She alone still stands
crumbling and grey,
because her keeper has gone away.
He left her to face the elements.

Crumbling and grey
amongst silence and heartache.
He left her to face the elements,
in this garden of his.

This style of poetry is called a Pantoum. I had to write one for English, so I figured I'd post it one here as well.
