In my sunny lemon tree,
I hide
From the light that follows me
Hide me!
I don't want them to see me
They should
Just leave me here and let me be
My sunny, honey lemon tree
The place
To hide me from the raging sea
Its waves enveloping me
Taking me down
To depths where I drown
Ever down to the sea bed
Where the rocks leave me for dead

Mmm, Lemony Fresh
I like how you contrasted somewhat the image of a lemon tree with harsher images like crashing waves to make your point stand out more.

awesome rythem
I love this. The halting rythem gives it this tentative unpretentious appeal and the length is perfect... great poem.
