Description: This poem was my first real attempt at a love poem with meaning. I was going through difficulties with my now ex. I had a girlfriend after our seperation that went back to her own life and I went back to my ex. I desire honest opinions, whether the words are soft or harsh.
Love Blossom -------------------------------------------
Love, like a flower, must bloom
to bring about new life.
But, as the flower has a winter cycle,
love must fade away to grow.
As bitter-sweet love fades,
Like a wilting flower,
anew grows love's budding blossom
to greet the coming sun.
Where my heart must go
I'll see in days to come
for the falling of it's petals
are scattered to and fro.
Two wilting flowers
their seed passed in the wind
pause for one sweet moment
to begin their life again.
i like the use of flowers and plants in this poem to describe love (i too have used flowers to describe things) i feel this an effective way to express something! one line that threw me a little however - 'a new grows love's budding blossom' little bit tongue tied with this. it's true that love has to fade and die a little to make way for new love to grow in its place. It's amazing how you can connect two things, in this case love and nature, together and the fit so perfectly in similarity. great stuff cally xxx
