Poetry grows from the seed of pain.

So I wander in this garden of wounds proliferating the earth with my words.

Melancholy and regret overflow in the soil as I dredge up my broken dreams.

I cry a sea of tears as I try to shelter the pain in my chest.

I look down at the metaphors that were sown with my pen, and I know there is no need to harvest them again.

Purged from my soul, like autumn leaves, they can now blow away.

I watch as new seeds bloom and flower, and the past is gone forever.
