Illegitimate Love


Under the autumn tree,
Lay the empty bench.
The wind blew in glee,
But the wood’s memory was a glitch.
It remained there empty
Lost in the grey.
Waiting for some family
To come and pray.
But no one cared for its story,
Not even in the month of February,
When the lovers united,
And sat in its seat.
As the love spread in the air,
No one listened to its plea.
And now all that was left in it
Were memories in the dark.
One day, a maple came forward,
And rested in its light.
They began weaving their love story,
As they faded away in each others memories.

  6. Hmm... Hope I don't sound silly on this

    1st Interpretation was that the tree and the Maple leaf were personified and depicted how a lonely person can suddenly find a true companion she/he can cherish forever (or until death do them apart case...) even if they are not of the same type... I mean leaf should be with leaf and tree should be with tree. This kinda pairing makes it illegitimate? They then fade away into their dream world?

    2nd Interpretation assumes that this poem is actually the leaf's observation. Either the leaf is similar to the tree (like above) or takes sympathy on it and decides to befriend the tree so it can bloom by spring time? No they fade away... meaning sad ending. The leaf was swept by the sweeper and the tree cut by lumbers... (gah!)

    3rd was... that you wrote it without thinking and I'm thinking about it more than I'm supposed to?

    Finally... about my poem. Could you actually follow the dialog? I mean who was talking to whom?

  10. @Selenium: Well the part when you said:
    I mean leaf should be with leaf and tree should be with tree. This kinda pairing makes it illegitimate?
    ..is true. Well actually in that bench lovers used to come once. but now they don't so it feels lonely. but one day a maple feel on it and they fell in love.... :D That all i meant. But Im really glad people can interpret it in many different ways! :)

    to your query-I write what my heart says,i don't excel in art of writing poems actually.i am just an amateur poet,so most of my poems are short and don't contain any title. :)
