ok guys this is a pretty old one from last summer and I have a much better revised and longer version but I can't find them at the moment....when I do (If I do) I'll post it here too.This was one of the first ones I wrote when I started writing again for the first time in a few years and I know the rhyming is messed up cause there wasn't a scheme so just bear with me a minute.

Garden of death

In the garden of life,
where death is born,
And anyone who comes there,
Is causing need to mourn.
Where wilted tulips lie,
and the dead are grateful to die.
Even those passing by,
give slow death a try.
But should you have a single fear,
then I'd advice against coming here,
Because you'll only fear in vain....
fear only ever leads to pain.
Never wonder why,
The answer may not be a lie.
If you come don't expect to leave...
Know that most here exist to decieve.
In the garden of life,
where death grows.

  In the garden of life,
where death grows.

i liked those lines the most because they were very contradictory. ur rhyme scheme was good, it just wasn't consistant like most of ur writes. i can't talk though. my rhyme schemes are very seldom the same throughout an entire write.
i think this was good and it kinda reminded me like an evil mirror version of the garden of Eden

  okay the subject matter of this poem is one of my favorites so i chose to respond to this one
however i dont know if your interested in some suggestions but just for flows sake heres a few. Not to be critical i just thought the overall piece was worth the effort.
n e ways

And anyone who comes there,
Is causing need to mourn.

maybe would sound better if it was more concise
all who come here
have cause to mourn

Where wilted tulips lie,
the dead are grateful to die. (i just cut out the and)

this is just suggestions I really loved your work here and would love to see the longer version like i said depressed ramblings are my favorites thanks

  omg. that's awesome! very, very poetic and just beautiful. i love it, death growing in life's garden. it's perfect. the only thing i would think about is fear being in vain, cuz fear is like a person's best friend. you know ur alive when ur afraid of things and u can't be courageous without fears to overcome. if u fear nothing then what's brave about risking ur life. other than that this is the most beautiful thing i've ever read in my life. great write! ~Sam~

  This is so [censored] awesome. It's definately a favorite and it was so, so, so, so, so good! omg, I'm so hyper, woohoo. I'm drinking Liquor, lol, not a lot, but, I could if I wanted to, lol. Your rhyming was really great and I didn't care if it didn't have a specific rhyming pattern or not, what does it matter? Great write.

  Beautiful. Just beautiful! I like it alot. The name fits perfectly and I really wouldn't change a thing except add more deatil. I know above in the description you said you have a longer version now but I'll post on this and give advice. I don't know maybe this would help it along more. "In the garden of life,
where death is born,
And anyone who comes there,
Is causing need to mourn." These lines have to be my favorite ones from the whole poem and i would love to see you expand upon them. I hope to see more work by you and this is going to be added as one f my favorites.

  I loved this.

I believe you needed your break so your could grow as a writer. I personally hope the revise was a good one because this poem sounds great like this and sometimes we can be such hard critiques and ruin something thats already good. I really don't have a favorite line, everything was right on point and flowed perfect line after line.

great job
