The Garden
by   Gracie Lynn

The sky, 
a burning fire of autumn,
ignites the memories
that lie shrouded beneath the pain.
She shuts her eyes
and leans back, 
sacrificing herself to the setting sun.
Cheeks flush
and a tear falls
to the blanket of thick grass
upon which she lies.
She sighs, 
the scent of roses
intoxicating her 
as she caresses the petals,
memorizing every detail
as if it were the gentle bud of his lips
and the warm velvet in his cheeks.
The deep violet cloak of dusk
encircles her,
the surrounding world
breathing the shade of pale blue
she wears upon her heart.
The air moans with aching ghosts
of lovers past
as iris blooms fade into the night, 
their scent lingering 
upon her lips.
