Sadness, depression /
bleed the moon of life,
and the jasmine scent of your skin
stagnates with the weight of the past,
I come to understand the reason for my claustrophobia:
Your beautiful tresses are lank,
your hands are cold
and your eyes are lifeless lagoons
that plummet eternity's depths.
You have left me.

Wonderful poem. Such a well-deserved win. :)
Why do you have a problem with your free verse?
I think they’re great :)
by Ben Pickard
Thanks, Star. Not so much a problem, it just doesn't come as naturally to me. It's funny because I had never written any free verse until joining this site in 2015, and now I rather enjoy it!
