Flower In The Mud (poem)

Updated on July 18, 2012

Amid the blackened mud a flower grew

Reminder of a time that couldn’t last

A lover’s passion burning way too fast

This flower bears the madness they went through

-

Oh flower of such kisses from the past

What feelings fostered fate of lovers two

One wonders now if even they then knew

Speak flower any scent which you may cast

-

A sunny day they say when couple met

To air some darkness brewing in their mind

Resulting in a flower in the mud

-

What followed was a scene of deep regret

As blow by blow soft words became unkind

Resulting in a flower in the blood

      Some loves were never meant to be. Passion can be a wonderful thing, but it can also be dangerous.

      You can even make a lovers argument beautiful.

      Great poem. Even the most famous lovers had arguments. Love the picture it conjures up of a flower crushed in mud brings the truth so much more closer.

      Ann wrote selling movie rights to some of your poems would be a good idea. I agree with her. Your poems are exactly what she said they are. She just described them better then I did.

      Lovely is all I can say. I love the way nature has been brought into this love poem (even though there is a sad tone to it). Beautifully versed.

      My goodness, but what a great movie this would make - ever consider selling movie rights to some of your poems? The music is fabulous and the picture is perfect. Voted up.

      Awesome poem. A little more than a lovers tiff.
