Leaves of Lines [Poetry collection]

A compilation of my poetry ranging across the board. [I'm not depressed, by the way] So far, these are all published as separate movellas, so you can either comment here on the whole, or if you want to leave comments on a specific poem, feel free to find that one in my list. Either way is fine with me! Photo cred: https://www.flickr.com/photos/109065142@N02/sets

4. Everlasting Autumn


 

When the leaves won’t fall

and the grass won’t grow,

Where are you?

The seasons won’t change,

the snow won’t come,

Are you thinking of me too?

 

The stars stay out,

the sun won’t shine- 

You’re not there.

The birds don’t chirp,

the breeze won’t blow-

Do you care?

 

And if you’re not here,

what to do?

Life is cold without you.

Time seems to freeze 

in waiting for you;

The sobbing streams miss you too.

 

The stars fall,

the moon fades,

Black goes the night.

It’s too much to move,

too much to try,

Too much to fight.

 

But then there’s a ray,

a hopeful light

to scare away the black.

You’re here now,

if just for a while.

Against it all, you’ve come back.

 

Fall skips to spring,

the birds rejoice

Though I know it can’t last.

For soon you’ll be gone

and fall will return

To push this to the past.

 

The leaves won’t fall,

the grass won’t grow,

Holding still the chance,

That you’ll come again

to give them life,

and perhaps give me a glance.
