Forget Me Nots
« on: October 16, 2004, 01:33:32 pm »
forget me nots
round ever corner
growing in amongst the weeds
reminders of you
everywhere I look
spreading seeds

trapped in a garden
surrounded by images of you
even when the birds sing
they play your tune
I see now you meant it
when you said I'd never forget you

these dainty blue flowers
have turned me to rust
tied up in knots
and crumbling to dust

forget me nots
like you used to put in my hair
on those bright summer days
I remember you there
in that garden of ours
where we sat in summer
and we'd play those games for days

strolling by the river
trying to forget
all the memories of you
all the pictures I kept
now float on the water
so clear and so blue
as deep as the sky
as deep as your eyes
just a guy, just a guy...

walking through the streets
trying not to remember
a summer so bright
has turned into such a cold november
and the one picture I have left
I bury in the garden we kept

and with dirt on my hands
the blood of our love
I walk home and see
the forget me nots
on every corner
growing amongst the weeds
a thing so beautiful
overtaken by greed

Haven't posted anything in a while...as usual feeback's appreciated =)

Such beautiful imagery. I like it a lot.  

I was going to pick out my favorite parts, but there are so many!

For me it's a glance
And a smile on your face
A touch of your hands
An honest embrace - VC, Home

Wow, so beautiful... it seems a little bit tongue-in-cheek, too, which I think is one of the coolest ways poems/songs can be written. :D  Great job!
