Innocent to the untrained eye. A lie without purpose. Until you become wise or trained and know how with purpose and/or moral - 30 December 2005


A sharp metal disease spilt over the walls –
Seeps deep as the innocent daisy calls.
Floorboards with woodworm caught alight –
Dies out below as the daisy bites.

The white petals vine with blue, flapping heart.

I love this poem. Your use of rhyme is haunting and beautiful rather than forced, if you know what I mean.

And, no, you do not know who I am, but I enjoyed this poem very much and decided to tell you so :}

A well crafted poem. I love the images that you've painted here, so vivid.

What's on the otherside of them walls, I wonder.
Makes me think that in the end we are all fertiliser
in the end....



as untrained as most eyes are the unseen is more clear than that of the seen i like this poem
