Here’s a Throw back poem I’ve managed to salvage I think it’s from 2010 if I’m not mistaken. Enjoy!
By: James Revels III
Remember when I saw you?
I was walking through a garden,
Your smell and beauty attracted me,
It soothed my soul,
So I picked you up and planted you in my front lawn,
You were my most prized possession,
I loved you so much.
But remember when you gave me those glasses?
You know, the ones with the funny color?
I put on the glasses,
I remembered how I thought my sight was better,
How I thought you helped me see you better,
You loved me so much.
Then I tried to hold you,
But when I did you spat words that pierced like thorns,
You missed my heart and hit my soul,
Oh, how I suffered that day!
I wonder what happened to you,
I had loved you so much.
I remember how I wished you would wither and die,
Until I saw you again,
Sitting exactly where I left you,
But bigger and more beautiful than before,
The aroma of nostalgic feelings filled the air,
I took your glasses,
I set them at your roots and walked away.
As I walked a way I heard footsteps,
I turned around,
I saw a boy admiring you,
And by the look in his eyes
He loved you very much.
