Turn Around and Take a Look (Contest)

by GretaInsideOut   Jul 15, 2007

Turn around and take a look, At what you left behind.
The muddled foes, Your angry woes,
Will lead us all astray.

Time ticks by on a cracked clock face,
Changing places, Misplaced faces,
The moment you slip away.

Piecing together a broken home,
Shattered hearts, Brand-new starts,
The memories we wish to forget.

Stuck in that hole in the ground,
The spiteful lies, Family ties,
The same room where she cried.

Happiness just down the street,
Neighborhood nights, Silent fights,
A lifetime's gap between minds.

Turn around and take a look, At what you left behind.

    Interesting poem, though I'm not entirely sure if the message was clear enough for some of us more daft readers haha.

    I suppose the rest of the Auzzies are out there drinking and dmaging bain cells instead of writing poetry!

    Not much to add to this poem, probably might have used the word Void instead of 'hole in the ground' for a more poetic effect :).
