This poem is about a barren life.

 The earth is scorched and bitter here,

a sad and sere plateau.

Acid poisoned the sacred soil

and nothng new will grow.

The garden has withered and died,

the flowers burnt to dust.

The trowel and rake are cast aside,

grimy with dirt and rust.

The gardener has long sice fled,

and won't be back again.

Harsh droughts and storms drove him away

to find a greener glen...

...and so this ground sits desolate,

a lonely place apart,

and no one ever comes to tend

this wasteland that's my heart.

Brava! Stand. Take a bow. Clap.Clap

I liked this. You manipulated the reader (me) fantastically and lulled me into visualizing something that wasn't. The ending made me snap my head up and the resounding sound could have been a mental slap.

Very well written piece of poetical drama with a very sad and personal touch.
