    dotsMaiden dots

    I found a maiden weeping
    under a willow of all things
    I smiled at the irony
    and bent below the tendrils of soft leaves

    she wept for a boy
    you should not be surprised
    that I did not falter upon this news
    my lips did turn, thinking I was wise

    I've heard this tale before

    "Maiden, weep not"

    She did carry on
    accused me of not understanding
    I was almost angry
    for I understood all to well

    upon taking a moment, to pause
    and percieve the situation that I might be the maiden
    weeping under a willow
    with deep sorrow sautrating a red and rosy face
    and making it more crimson, and swollen

    and in this state
    being incredibly vulnerable
    with pain and miserable shame

    from my memory I recalled a time when I was a maiden
    and I left her to her sorrow
    to cry today
    and heal tomorrow

      This is a wonderful piece. Whether intended or not, the "irony" of the "weeping" willow in the beginning, seems (to me) to mirror the "irony" that you have been that same maiden. A very fine write.

      Pretty, pretty, pretty!

    I could copy and paste the whole thing as my favorite lines, but that would be an absolute waste of time...you don't want to reread your own poem in my comment.

    I found this to be very lovely, though.

      well, i do think this is quite interesting my dear, although i must say i am glad that you took my name off of it....i do not cry and get a swollen red face over anyone but myself...

    anyway, quite pretty and well written....at least its not a sonnet...

      Very good Jazmine. I think everyone has had a time like this. Maybe not the maiden part, if you're a male, lol, but yes I think a lot of people can relate to this. I like the last lines of this poem, it really puts the saying, "time heals all wounds" into perspective. Very good poem.

      brilliant!! smashing!! wicked!!! doesnt everyone know how it is to be that maiden under the damn willow? to feel utterly alone and unloved? doesnt everyone know what it's like to stumble upon the maiden? to be accused of not understanding? and then realizing that solitude is the cure?
    "and I left her to her sorrow
    to cry today
    and heal tomorrow"
    my favorite lines. keep it loverly.

    i tip my hat and bid thee farewell.
