English Poetry

Dueling GuitarsThis poem has become an obsession, since I got the idea. I can’t seem to make it be the way I pictured it in my mind, so it feels like I am stabbing a pillow full of nothing but air.

It has all turned to a stone,

The once rich garden, is now all cold.

The greens, reds, and purples, burnt by the fury of the ice.

Maybe the flowers… Were tired of all the lies.

The flowers dried out… Leaving no happiness behind.

With all the flowers gone, the garden had no longer hopes…

For the flowers were its soul, the best in it.

Your heart has turned to a stone.

A cold stone. Filled with melancholy.

The greens, reds, and purples of your heart…

Have been burnt by the fury of the ice.

You had so much to offer, yet people still denied you.

Your smiles and hugs reaching only the empty air.

But, even now… You give the lifeless ground, your usual smile.

That is what happens to everyone’s garden,

It is burnt by the cold, eaten by sorrow,

Drowned by apathy, while having only one desire,

Light, a ray of happiness that could make all the flowers,

Grow. The reds, and purples, and blues,

Are far better than the blacks and whites.

Frost killed your gardens, and turned your heart to stone…

All hope is,

Gone.

    These look like fine lyrics to be sung in the tune of an elegant song.
    Is the guitar piece the tune for singing this song ?.
    If so why not you sing and download the podcast here for us to listen to the song.
    The guitar piece is enchanting. Liked immensely
    Agree with Gion’s comment.

    Me sing? Not a good idea. 😛 That’d be terrible…

    If anyone feels up to it, though, go ahead. 🙂
    The guitar piece is actually from a movie, which I found mesmerizing since I heard for the first time. I and had the idea of using it with a poem. Then this one popped up. So ch-yeah.
