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,

      " hands would clutch her too tight"

      Were those hands around her throat??

      ...just saying...
