White Flowers.

I wanted to walk
and walk
the night away,
my silent words
trapped
in the frozen breath
I breathed.

Stars hung
with grace
like tears in the black.
I wanted to tear the moon
from the sky
and just hold it
a little while.

I searched for a place
to lay to rest
your name
that was eating up my chest,
And I found
a quiet hill
at the edge of the city.
A place
where broken things gather.

I dug the earth
with my bare hands
frozen
cold
and I missed your warm soul.
I laid your name
there in the dust
among frozen flowers.

Someday
I’ll look back
when winter has given way
to the sun
and I’ll see this place,
rising
from fallen leaves.
An echo.

And where once
I laid your name
I’ll see
only
white flowers.

  1. This is a gorgeous elegant poem, really felt that! 🙂

    Would you be interested in this beautiful poem being published in the next issue of an online literary magazine of mine?

    It currently has ten issues (one new one every two months). There are no printed copies or any payment involved for myself or the writers – it’s a free magazine for anyone to read. The aim is to help promote writers on websites and blogs from all over the internet. https://thewritinggarden.wordpress.com/

    Copyright remains with the writer and I always include a link back to where the work was originally published and also any other links or social media links you may wish to include (please let me know which ones – if you have any).

    If you would be interested in allowing me to publish your work please check out the magazine and let me know. But if you’d rather not, don’t hesitate to say no, I really won’t mind.
    Suzy 🙂
