I Gave You My Heart In A Flower Pot

I Gave You My Heart In A Flower Pot

A Poem by LeDiisco

The door handle is getting dusty….

The metal is getting rusty…. 

Starving to death from lack of attention. 

There was one last thing I forgot to mention.

I gave you my heart in a flower pot. 

Told you to water it or else it would rot. 

Said to keep it in the sun just to feel the warm.

With a little love it would transform. 

But the pot is not blooming cause its dried to a crisp. 

No water was given so it turned to a wisp.

The dirt turned my poor innocent heart cold

Cause no heat was provided as you were once told.

My hearts lies neglect in that dusty old pot. 

That pot you so easily about forgot. 

It can never be bloomed to the full flower love,

Because you gave my gift a shove. 

You'll find this old flowerless pot one sad day,

And remember the neglect that you threw my way.

You will pour too much water to make up for the past, 

And realize its dead, you were surly miscast. 

Guilt and reality soon set in. 

My cinderella carriage was just a pumpkin.

I gave you my heart in a flower pot. 


I didn't think you would just let it rot.

Not much of a writer, you say? I say No Way!! This is an adorable enjoyable read, though sad.
The talent is there...At 20, few are "much of a writer" but you have talent that few have, in my opinion. Nowhere to go but UP^
I loved this, personally
Thanks for sharing

I enjoyed the rhyming here, not bad for a 20 min. write.
Your words were so beautifully sad and felt...

interesting, it has a certain appeal to it, dark as it has meaning.
