~Lavender Roots~

~Lavender Roots~

A Poem by LanternBounty

Dream land doesn't have it's own perks.

This world is filled with the cruelest of jerks.

Sultry lavender scents cloud the dead.

Depression is a phantom, haunting my head.

Razorblades and pills don't seem like an option for me.

I doubt the help, I just want the world to see.

My heart can't take all this pain.

The world is clouded by themselves being vain.

~

The hate that they spat, the pain that they spew,

the things that I can't understand that they knew.

Do they even realize I'm the heart that they broke.

I'm not just some joke.

I don't say half the things that I dare.

I'm not your problem, so why do you care?

Why shouldn't everyone believe that what you say are lies?

Each day another part of me dies.

Wow I love the message you're trying to get across here, and the title was, of course, what initally drew me in.
I do have a few complaints, though--I'll be brutally honest. The flow is totally off. There's syllables that need to be cut off or added here or there, that would dramatically increase the beauty of a poem that has raw truth in the message.
The bones are shaped wonderfully on this poem; it's just the surface that's a little blemished.
