Forever’s Walls (poem)

Updated on June 19, 2013

Within these walls is buried there

A secret much too harsh to bear

A dream which passed another day

Which turned into this fate we share

-

My heaven was this hideaway

Where every Joy was free to play

Each promised day would bring something new

And wonders came in vast array

-

Each scent was a moment so true

A paradise where fancies flew

Where hearts of young lovers roamed free

In fields covered with flowers’ dew

-

Then strange feeling fell upon me

Its grip gave no haven to flee

Its kiss brought me into its night

And swim amid pain’s jealousy

-

Soon reasons would quickly ignite

Warm hugs were replaced by a fight

Our garden now knew only rain

Till my hands would clutch her too tight

-

And here as myself I regain

Adrift in forever’s refrain

As heartbeats from walls once more blare

From madness too wretched to explain

      Makes me think. Better a hug than a fight.

      Dark and haunting.

      I have a feeling that he loved her a bit too much,

      "...my hands would clutch her too tight"

      Were those hands around her throat??

      ...just saying...
