    Hey guys I’m back with another poem. This one is a different take on the one I wrote about my friend’s passing, but its still the same subject. It’s for @yamyamiyamlovesturtlecorns’s contest (theme: sad). And I FORGOT TAGS LAST TIME so sorry everyone! But say if you want a tag. Anyway, enjoy.

    The Maple Tree

    Sitting under the maple tree
    Watching the raindrops fall
    The world is brimming with rain and red leaves
    And nothing matters at all

    The red of the leaves
    Leaves me speechless
    My thoughts, unconvinced
    I can’t preach this
    After he was swept away
    By the cruel, cruel wind
    The world has blurred into bleakness

    Even after all that has happened
    I’m just like one of these leaves
    Being blown from this end to that end
    Mindlessly running as it grieves

    Running far and wide
    Running and wanting to hide
    From the pain, from this game
    Now it all seems the same
    This game and the beast roaring inside

    Since he died
    No, since he lived
    Since he breathed his last breath
    Like a sieve;

    Like a sieve my memories shift through each other
    And suddenly I’m not there
    I’m somewhere else, I’m just another
    Spectator watching myself

    My thoughts are spools of thread
    Slowly being unraveled, they said:
    “Under this great tree of red
    The grey clouds are silver instead”

    But then, the memories
    Come

    But then, the tenor strings
    Strum

    All that hope, just wiped
    Away

    Like the rain on this,
    This sunless day

    Sitting under the maple tree
    Watching the raindrops fall
    The world is brimming with rain and red leaves
    And nothing
    Nothing at all
    Nothing matters

    In fall
