CREEP


Here...
In my garden
Upon the break of dawn
I see you there
And know  
That something's wrong

That look upon your face
I am sure
No amount of time
will dare erase
As I peer into 
Those frozen crystal tears
Where my own reflection
Now appears...

How queer?

There you stand above 
Those thorns
Of bitterness
So sharp and green
With envy
Of your loveliness
Held within
The grip of winter's breath
A  scarlet Goddess
In the throws of death 

I look at you
And feel your pain
As your scarlet petals 
Wither  in the frozen rain
And fall like drops of blood upon
the snowy mantle white
The sacrifice you made
To know 
This thing called life

       ~~~

Where Others look at you
And see a rose
I look at you and see
What I suppose

    ~~~

Others look at me 
And see
  
A CREEP!

A WEIRDO!

Which causes me
To reflect
Upon myself
In deep repose  
And ask myself...


WHAT THE HELL
AM I DOING HERE
ANYHOW?



For:   Creep contest

 AWARDED: FIRST PLACE

    Elaine, only a true poet with great imagination would think of such a theme to respond to the creep song.. I loved your interpretation.. A rose is beautiful, but it also has thorns, an analogy used a lot, but your poem was fresh and deep! Congratulations on your first place in the creep contest.

    Really good write Elaine...very emotional

    Elaine, when this contest ends, I would end this beautiful poem just before A Creep. I know you needed to include that part for the contest but it takes away from the lovely serene connection between you and the rose. Just my observation. Outstanding! 7 ; )

    Everyone sees things differently and that goes for people as well as flowers. It doesn't mean what they see is the absolute truth because they don't always view things with absolute truth, often it is based off of a preconceived idea that is anything but true. Loved you poem Lainey, this was very well written. The message is clear and hits hard. Good luck in the contest.
