** MY WEEPING WILLOW TREE!


MY WEEPING WILLOW TREE!
Somewhere within my heart unknowingly,
A weeping willow had taken roots secretly!
It got nurtured over the years by my forlorn
and sad thoughts;
By many heartaches and unrequited love, -
The mind seemed to have forgot!
Now the willow has become a full grown
tree!
It bends over my mind like a shadow -
to torture me!
It sheds its salty tears periodically, -
The willow has now become a part of
Me!

    A heartfelt poem that was well written. I liked how you used a weeping willow to express the sadness within. An interesting concept & a joy to read. Thanks for sharing.

    Very poignant and skillful use of metaphor. I can hear your inner cry.
    Take care.

    touching metaphor. Incidently i always wonder why its called a weeping willow.
    one learns in life that you have to carry your cross alone, very poignant poem.
    i too was inspired to write a haiku- Weeping Willows sometime back.
