Desert Flower Poem by keith hendrickson

Desert Flower

Rating: 4.7

early morning hours i just cant sleep
my mind goes far and my heart runs deep
you can see it in my eyes i just cant forget
so a late night sweat turns into an early morning breath
with once again the contemplation of death
wishing i can move on but i got no where to go
and i wish i can foget but the process is slow
so slow it burns not to cry
but that stuff i gotta hide real real deep inside
so nobody will ever know
damn then i wonder why i will never ever grow

Very beautifully, and artisticly written. The feel that this piece portrays, almost makes you forget your talking about a desert flower fighting to survive. Same as the feelings we can feel. Once adored, once beautiful. Once cherished and well taken care of. But eventually we all become weeds.

your work is very fluid, full of emotion. i am surprised to find another poet with ideas so close to mine. keep pouring your emotion into your work. and keep working to not let your emotion get the best of you. your poems are your relaease, take the gift you, ve been given and use it to the best aptitude. keep writing your heartfelt desires instead of giving in to them. another impressive write my friend.
