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.
