Life Entombed

In the garden of broken hope
Nothing lives, nothing grows

In the garden of crushed dreams
Nothing sings, nothing teems

In the garden of utter loneliness
Nothing cares, nothing caress

In the garden of eternal gloom
Nothing buds, nothing bloom

Garden of life entombed

For reasons that will probably get out in my writing, I’ve haven’t posted in a while. But with end of summer approaching I felt the need to reconnect, to restart, to refocus. A Beloved Quadrille felt like a good start.

    1. Sometimes I feel the need to let sadness or darkness take center stage. Without mitigating them. After all even the easiest life contains heartbreak and sorrow. And I for one think you have to for example grieve fully before you can move on.

      The last line was, in a way, heartbreaking to come up with. If that makes any sense at all?

    1. Thank you! Life wilting was one of the feelings I wanted to convey. Seems like most everyone wilted a bit this strange year. Less sparkle of passion, dreams evaporating, more uncertainty – whether or not you’ve been sick, lost your job or can count yourself among the lucky.

    1. Thank you! 💙
      Yeah, I’m not one for shying away from the darker side of life. That has it’s place in life to. And yes, I am starting to realize how much love and support I’ve denied myself for all those years I didn’t write true or shared my writing.
