Sunflower

Standard

SUNFLOWER

 

Explain to me this horror dream

I have each day

which begins like a sunflower in a way

but ends in thick bitter cream.

 

Whenever the sunflower

wants to open and expose happiness

the forces of evil surrounds it with sadness

and takes away the flowers power.

 

Just as people take away

the strength of each other

they’ll leave you there for another

time or day.

 

Rotten people so-called bright

not even half like a peaceful night.

    And thanks for liking my post, “Here and Now”;
    I’m glad you did, for it led me to discover your profound poetry.

    Thanks. Now I follow you. See you around.

  4. If I admit something, I don’t really know what is the procedure of writing & what should be the genre or category. When I write, I feel normal, I feel that very moment I am the only companion of me & that drives me towards writing. While I was reading you work, I got the same feeling somehow. It may or may not be true, but this particular post was a terminator.

    Thank you for sharing.

    • You are spot on. I also have no idea if there is any criteria for writting the perfect poem. All I do is write what I feel cause it makes me feel good and normal like you said. Thanx for visiting my blog. Your comment means a lot.

  5. Your words are powerful. To use this subject matter, this way to me, was a great choice.
    Thanks for visiting, I’m in up over my ears, so it may take a while to get back to you, but I often read just to relax. and these are worth the time!!!

  6. Thank you for stopping by my blog and thus enabling me to discover you. You have a very clear poetic voice and I found this poem particularly haunting by all that is unsaid (despite the strong language ‘rotten people’ etc.). What great lines, too: ‘begins like a sunflower in a way/ but ends in thick bitter cream’.
