Reality - An Original Poem By Evelynn Lammlin

Roses are red

Violets are blue

Sugar is sweet, and perhaps so are you

But the roses have wilted

The violets have died

And the sugar has spilled

The view is fogged

The sky is dying

And you’ve ended your life

The silver lining is missing

I’m following your footsteps

I’m standing alone, in the dark


So far from the sun

Your last words were simple but meant so much

“Don’t cry, I died a while back”

The bond we formed has shattered

My dreams have gone missing

Our tears are no longer shared

The cuts are no longer hidden

My smile is gone

They can see the tears

But nobody noticed

Nobody cared

Tears on my face, memories burned in my head;

The roses have wilted

The violets are dead

The garden has died

As well as my hope

I miss the old me

The happy me

The popular me

The funny me

But she died with you

All of me...

All of me died with you
