Garden of Eden

Into the Garden of Eden
he fell
And slipped away
 from this life.

New visions
had been 
created,
weighted
down,
the task
of an army,
non-too calmly
blowing
fresh winds,
fresh thoughts
through
his veins.
Taking away
the pains
and brought
hope,
adventure,
ambitions,
new additions
they brought
a new history,
a mystery
to those around.
But.
Everything
important
was
then
taken,
forsaken
and his life
was over
slipping
away
into monotony,
a labotomy
filled
 with inertia
filled
with the past.
 He dreams,
he lives
all in his mind,
free of the binds
where no-one
can intrude,
create an interlude
to this life
of eternal bliss
the past pi****
away
and slowly
his feet dipped,
slipped
into the
Garden of Eden.

    Aahh.. This Poem had The Double Meaning... It could be applied to the actual Adam (a new history, a new mystery, everything taken, forsaken) But it could apply to the present-day, the incidents everyday people face, life of monotony, labotomy (smile), inertia, thru his veins (powerful words) then this person finds own garden of Eden... I especially liked the phrases, new visions and 'task of an Army.. I get it.. To correct the problem... And the army was sent. "An Army of One. Loved it. MoonBee
