One Frosted Moment

And so it was growing
its nature unknown
a weed in their bed.

I'm latently piecing,
with society's spit, a rose
torn in shreds.

The time we spend sowing
soiled or on stones
fearing to tread,

While a frost blows in
and hazy bygones
freeze hard instead.

Once, a love grew
that with the sun arose
that was soon stoned
by Them. In its stead
were petals in pieces;
to silence it succum-bed.

I've nearly given up on this poem, haha how's this for melodrama and forced structure which are, in fact, all the makings of a bad poem. Well, now that I've gotten this off my chest (or harddrive hurhur) I'm off to cook me a late dinner..

[color=royal blue]It has some good lines. Just in terms of flow it's a little difficult.[/color]

actually foray i think its really well written.
the way it moves and sounds as you read it, is the feeling and images i think the poem emotes.
sound and fury is right.
u remind me of another poet who used to post here a lot but is now gone.

fors maybe I just love bad poetry (although I dont think that's true) but this is beautifully composed. it does not sound forced and the structure doesnt take away from it at all.
I agree with manda, I think it's really well written.
