A Grim Blossoming

Crying to me, these voices in pain,
With malice, I listen in vain.
Rust drips off these forgotten memories.
The sweet smell of those distant cherry trees
Those pale petals clinging to their limb,
Their vivid pink center is rather grim.
How I yearn for those pink blossoms,
Beneath them, lurk ugly possums.
I cherish these beasts for their dreams of glee,
But I know they'll never remember me.
A smile; spreading your crooked teeth,
Feeling your skin bubble and seethe.
Your lust for me, declared undying,
Alas! Mortals cannot cease their lying.
You weep and smell and breathe and see,
And yet you'll never lay your eyes on me.
My commodious heart, a keen seductress,
Leading me on like a cruel conductress.
Those petals so clear and frighteningly pink,
And, to see them, all I have to do is blink.

Sarah Luongo: I'm a big fan of the format of the book- the concept of incorporating poems and within the story and sectioning off periods of the story with each poem. It made it easier to read, and made the unimaginable easier to comprehend. What some people may skip over may be the most important part in this...

Emmelya Vandevoorde: I love this story ... heart warming and touching ...The end wasnt what i expected but life never is ...

Sir Nilo: Beautiful words! Remarkable. I loved it

Fabia Scali-Warner: Wow. This works reminds me of Allen Ginsberg, and at times even Prevert. The arching storyline is interesting, but I loved the care given to every verse. What a gem!
