I want to be buried
In the backyard,
Away, away I say,
From all the noise.

I’ll give you the seeds,
    To grow something beautiful
Above me.

I’ll feed
    The lilies
        My blackened blood,
They’ll grow
    Into something greater than I,
Nay –
Something greater than life in itself.

I’ll feed them my memories.
    And maybe they could blossom.
When the petals drop, maybe
They could finally be free.
Trying some new stuff out. Pay attention to the syllable stresses. I've been trying to improve my technical abilities lately. I hope this makes up for The Kid's  "poem" yesterday. 

PS. I'm not joking about my burial, when I die, I want to be buried in the backyard. Too bad it's illegal to do so in Canada without a license.

Really interesting. And, yeah, sucks we can't be buried in our back yards. I freakin grew up in this house and it means so much to me but in the end I'll be torn away.....

Till I find my way back to haunt it ;)

From what I've been told by people, you're allowed to bury ashes of people though. So I might do that.

And Thanks :)

There's beauty in ending :) It's doesn't have to be a sad one.

I guess that's true; reminds me of one of those Japanese myths, illustrated in Shirahime Syo, of a woman who "became a flower" to wait for her lover, when her body was too weak to uphold her promise.. but still.
