If flowers could cry

 

Deep in the ground

rotted in love

 

 

growing in the promise of another day

Above the surface

 

Bursting with color

the flower blooms

 

 

Yet something holds it back. 

The waters not of the weather

 

Something more deep

Down in the root

 

something snapped

and out came a liquid

That crumpled the flower

and let it fall

 

casting only dropped flower petals

a hollow feeling

 

that no one can help

sorrow and tears

 

Not in fear or frustration

 

but a lonely solace 

 

that can’t be fixed.
