I love your title but I guess I don't see how it fits... is it an expression of some sort? I'd really like to know the meaning behind why you chose it.
This idea is truly intriguing and very unique! I love it so much, would you mind if I used this topic someday? I don't want you to feel like I'm 'stealing your ideas'.. although my poem would be completely different from yours... I figured I would ask as I don't want to make anyone mad. :) If not, completely understand.
"Writing all their secrets down
as tombstones crumble
on to p of them yet again."
^ My favorite stanza although a slight typo.. needs to be top.
Hannah, of course you may write your own, I can't stop you and i am curious to see what you would come up with! thank you for reading. and I compare roses to the heart, its a phrase my friends and I share... it seemed to fit in a more personal way than a universal. Thank you for pointing out my typo though, I'm off to fix it now.
