"If Anyone Here Knows A Reason..."

by Ben Pickard   Jul 23, 2017

The organ collapsed
as I declared my love
for you. And now,
its buckled pipes
and broken melodies
are all that remain
of a marriage that
shattered before we
could even say

'I do'.

    Hello! Sir

    This poem is truly good. I think it’s written with different mind set up. Hard times often comes in a relationship, hopefully all the best for your next declaration of love.

    Nice Metaphor Ben, admired by Ken. Lots of depth, the organ can be the heart but also the love instrument used for the failed relationship. Unmarried but living like it was so, collapsing at the end.

    Damn Ben, you have been a crazily amazing writing journey as of late. That doesn't mean your previous work has been anything less than stellar but you've been dropping these gems left and right and I have been blown away. This is no exception, love it!
