Passion Flower

20140116-143906.jpg

Didn’t make it
Through the winter
Still can’t
Remove the splinter
Just seen
Beneath the surface
Unreachable
Abyss

Shone brightly
In the summer
Teeth reveal
The number
Of times
The faces smiled
Beside
Her open fire

Then voices
Became whispers
No sight
Of either dipper
On clouded
Starless nights
Forgetting
The best advice

Palsied seeds
Of despair
Stale petals
Once purple flare
But now forget
For she is gone
No revival
Just in a song

    Those lines are awesome. Really good poem, love the story you told with that flower, so good! (:

    1. Thanks! Glad you like it! This is actually based on true events. This was a flower in my sister’s garden that didn’t make it through the winter, and now “poof” it’s a metaphor. Haha.
