Old Abandoned Greenhouse by Hugh Dysart

Broken hearts get lonely,

misery loves the rain

Bloody hearts are only,

pleas to kill the pain


Broken hands, holding in the rain,

fingers around fingers,

roots around roots

Ivies meticulously dancing,

through the keyholes and cobwebs,

of an old, abandoned greenhouse


August meadow, long grass waves,

grasshoppers leap to my arrival

Broken panes twinkle,

luring deeper, calling closer

Ivies take my hand, dancing me,

to the old, abandoned greenhouse


Broken hearts are storming,

teardrops flood the shores

Bloody hearts are beating,

on broken greenhouse doors


Alone, surrounded by shivers,

in a very old place, a very old time

Standing in the Courtyard of Ivies,

amid the Dance of Broken Hearts

Angel hair tangles, Marigold eyes,

wild Rose petals, pout and preen

Sunflowers bow low, to the ladies,

Daisies blush in virginal white


Forever entwined in sunshine,

dewdrops cry in the rain

Moving to endless symphonies,

of buzzing bees and butterflies

Sweet winds always carry me home,

to the old, abandoned greenhouse


Broken hearts get lonely,

flowers love the rain

Teardrops are only,

a plea to kill the pain
