    The Garden Wall

    *** This poem was not written by me. Permission to publish this here was obtained from the original author who wishes to remain anonymous. ***

    The thick bricks separate the gardens.
    One lush and full of beauty,
    The other barren, desolate, with only a speck of love.

    In the one the flowers grow over eachother,
    Each trying to outshine the other.
    It's easy to get lost amongst that beauty.
    Easy to forget the thorns.

    In the other one lone flower stands out,
    Framed by dry cracked earth.
    It shines, there's nothing to compete against.
    It's thorns are seen, yet do not matter.

    The two gardeners jealously look over the wall.
    Each wants the others garden.
    One wishes for the simple, exquisite beauty given off by that single flower.
    The other wishes for masses of flowers to fill his view.
    And yet each guards jealously what is his.

    My "friend" is trying to get criminal charges pressed against me - but I still have permission to reproduce all of their poems. What can I say, we here at Writers Hangout go above and beyond the call of duty to please the members ;)

    Hell if I should know :P We aren't exactly on the best terms. They've been trying for a year now to see if they can take me to court over anything. Unfouranatly, I haven't done anything illegal ;)

    I need to appoint a staff member...'Head Pyro's Typo Correcter'. Their primary job would be to go around correcting my spelling errors and typos.

    albeit proper usage of Queen's English would suffice a Forum for Writers since we can't be using American/Canadian English since they don't really speak the language do they?

    :D

    Its not the queens english anymore. It's mine now. I stole it while she was asleep.
    She sent some knights to try to get it back when she woke up, but my crew of cyborg ninja hot chicks with chainsaws for hands decimated them.
    On a side note, it turns out she was feeding her knights steriods. We ran a DNA test on one of the bodies they left behind.
    Thats just bad form.

    I've printed it on an A3 paper after altering the font and markup a bit in word, and it is now hanging in the office-hall here, illuminated.

    Thank you for sharing.
