In the beginning, I think we were happy Growing together, we laughed and smiled Tending to you helped me escape from everything I didn't want to face. But eventually I had to face my demons, a battle I could never win alone. Maybe I should've stopped to ask for help, But I figured it was a road I had to travel without you Along the way, I lost the love I had for myself And I forgot that you needed love too My own selfishness blocked out all the light you needed to flourish. Pushing you away into a dark corner to be forgotten As I let doubts and worries creep in like weeds, hiding your true beauty. Intentionally going periods without watering you, I was desperately hoping you'd take the hint. I couldn't even maintain myself How could I continue to nurture you as well? But you never asked more than I could give Whatever I was able to give, you gave me back in return and so much more. I did everything I could to ruin you, But you always stood tall and never wilted I wish I could understand why Whether I wanted it or not, your roots are deeply ingrained in my life now, And whenever I'm sad, your flowers bloom again.

Rate This Submission

Please take the time to rate this writing once you have read it. Our ratings system allows people to know both how popular the writing is, and how well the general populous of the site thinks it is written. This also allows the writer to have feedback about their writing, so they know if they need to improve their technique, or if they're on the right track.

The system allows you to vote on several aspects on the writing. Refer to the help text below each aspect for an explanation. Consider the different aspects carefully, and submit your vote using this form. It will be instantly weighted with the other votes given.

Depending on the writing type, give your opinion on the overall plot if it is a story, or the concept of the writing if it is abstract such as a poem. Does it seem to make sense, strike a chord with you or seem a well chosen concept? Did the author stick to the concept or did they change mid-thought?
Did the author use words and descriptions that allowed you to visualize the scenes portrayed in the writing? Did the feelings of the work stir your emotions as you read it?
Were the words spelled correctly? Was proper punctuation and grammar used? Could you easily understand sentences or did you have to re-read lines several times to understand what was meant?
Depending on the writing type, how did the writing flow? If it's a story, did it have a smooth, easy to follow flow? Did the flow of events make sense? If it's poetry, did the author stick with the syllable flow for that writing type? Did the lines rhyme properly if a rhyming device was used?
Did the author use the same words over and over or did they use a broad vocabulary to get their exact point across? Could better wording be chosen then what they have used?
