A Poem by Ally Monique

Watermelon kisses
Root their seed garden on lips
Watered from swollen eyes.

And oh did they grow
Past those garden walls
Into the daisy veins of my neck

But those watermelon kisses
Began to grow rotten,
And those garden lips dry.

Because you always poured water
Like your glass was half empty.

Welp. That went south in hurry lol. The twist was nice! This is one of those short and sweet poems I will read multiple times over. Nice post, thanks for sharing.

You have poetically captured the pain of loving someone who doesn’t feel the same way about you; a pain that can be almost unbearable. It certainly doesn’t feel romantic. It just feels devastating. Good write - :-)

Amazing metaphor here! Great imagery employed. I could feel the emotions. Lydi**

nice one Ally...i like the images to convey, what once was half full did not fill all the way, but became empty of emotions...drained.

I like this a lot, I wasn't expecting it to have a more negative ending. Really lovely metaphor and fun to read.
