Daisies - Poem by Viola Grey

If I chose this rocky path
then why do I fight
to walk through fields
of plush daisies.

You say I desire pain
and walk away from love,
but I opened the gate
you failed to find.
So, who then is to blame?

I'm only ever going to be
who I want them to see,
that person you're seeking
is a reflection of your mind.

I shall walk in the light,
shadows chill my glow
and I'll always be searching
for that glorious field
of plush daisies.

    that person you're seeking
    is a reflection of your mind.

    Much thought and sensitivity within these lines young lady.
    The metophores of a rocky path, a field of daisies, and you
    opening the gate, makes me feel someone's heart was broken along the way.
    Hopefully they have found a different path full of sunflowers and sunshine!
    Well done.
