Crying Flower (Emotional Poem)

Updated on January 12, 2012

Another poem from my teenage years this one was something at the time that held a lot of meaning for me. I spent a lot of time during those years dealing with teenage angst, feeling things to the limit and my emotions were very tied in knots at the time. In those days I wouldn't have even dreamed of being so open and sharing this poem with anyone but these days I am fine with it. So much has happened and life has moved far beyond what it was in this freeze frame of time. This one runs more like a song than a true poem but you be the judge and let me know what you think of it.


Flutter petals in the sky

Crying flowers, tear to eye

When I see away you wilt

Shimmering now white is spilt

Greying slowly float away

Why'd you tell me, here today

Wounded angel your not mine

Save yourself leave me behind


Remember....


Space the cold and lifeless void

Here on earth we can't avoid

Imperfect solutions, imperfect me

Need some time just let me be


Thinking, blooming in your youth

Bury the lies and tell the truth

Never forget who carried you

Never lose the sight of you

Swallowing the time you burn

Frozen lights dark ghosts turn

Heaven's sun upon your face

Tell me why you've left this place


Remember.......


Space the cold and lifeless void

Here on earth we can't avoid

Imperfect solutions, imperfect me

Need some time just let me be


The flesh, the flame away you wash

Pure of softness, knowing the rush

When you see the age gets old

Just remember who you've sold


Just remember...


Space the cold and lifeless void

Here on earth we can't avoid

Imperfect solutions, imperfect me

Need some time just let me be

      Senoritaa - for me the art we create of the period is a freeze frame of what we were and how things were at the time. It helps us grow to look back and then move forward :)

      Your teenage poems make me wish I had saved mine. But they are all gone. Anyway, nice work again.

      Loved it. You are right, it is a lot like a song, but that is good thing and I can just remember that feeling. Difficult years, now left behind, but it's nice remembering.
