Frankenstein

Frankenstein

A Poem by Ally Monique
"

because you were long gone before I said goodbye

"
Frost
Grows where your fingernails
Claim to be
While I am pounding
These rusty, colorblind walls
begging to find you
Somewhere in between

I didn't want to sip the truth of
What was now in front of me-
A love, that had passed without
An official time of death

Like Frankenstein,
I tried to revive
The feelings you once had,
even though they had moved on
6 feet under

And, with no invite to the funeral,
I decided to dig your own grave,
Where I lay flowers every once and a while
But will never again, bring back

and igor...shed a tear at the grave...the monster was a sympathetic character. and this love is sympathetic for the reader when he or she thinks of how the speaker gave life to the relationship...and then had the worst part of it rebel and leave...i see the torches coming in the distance...

i love the metaphor used here...

nicely done, Ally...

Wonderful lines to finish of the prose...Sometimes you need really needs words to express emotions far better than the actions. Very Nice Poem!
