strangely enough, this poem was inspired by some Lolita fashion outfits that I saw and fell in love with

Comedy & Tragedy

From my hands,

From my hands, the precious jewel you left me fell to the ground.

Shattered and broken,

Shattered and broken, scattered and lost,

Shattered and broken, scattered and lost, I am nothing now.

The warmth of an early summer rain encases my withered heart.

A trembling wallflower,

A trembling wallflower, a phantom in the garden,

A trembling wallflower, a phantom in the garden, a burden.

Rosemary and sapphire,

Rosemary and sapphire, pearl and lace,

Rosemary and sapphire, pearl and lace, pure white and blood red.

Our love was a tragedy and a catastrophe.

In the cold fruit of death sleep the cruel seeds of life.

Pomegranates and hope are just false promises.

A bittersweet comedy holding my memory.

Golden apples and time are just false eulogies.

Rose petals choking my lungs,

Rose petals choking my lungs, thoughts of what could have been.

I am plagued by sleeplessness and squandered praises.

Your indifference sings and cries a cacophonous requiem for me.

In the rosy dawn,

In the rosy dawn, the searing noontide,

In the rosy dawn, the searing noontide, the ephemeral twilight.

I will remain here,

I will remain here, lovely and abandoned,

I will remain here, lovely and abandoned, devastated and haunting.
