Mourning Eden


I mourn Eden everyday
because somewhere between there
and here,
we have forgotten that love
and innocence are a sacred thing.

The tree of my life has seemed
to have rooted itself inside of him
and has found what it has been
searching for all of these years;
exactly what it needs to grow.

Though I have found my Eden,
his tree is wilting
and I searched inside of myself
to find what makes it grow
but nothing that I have
can make it blossom.

As long as his tree is still alive,
Eden is in his sun ladened mind
and I find the last
remaining innocence there,
though he himself is wilting.

    if the tree of life has (seemed? to have) rooted itself in him and found what it needs to grow............why is it wilting? it's not YOUR fault is it? ? a poet note might help me understand, but it is interesting without my understanding it. thanks for sharing. :) (Report) Reply
