Floral reminders of Spring's arrival and Summer's approach.
Lovely fragrances carried with the breeze.
Orange, blue, pink, yellow, white, red, purple, magenta, teal...
Wide array of colors.
Eager bees happily pollinating gardens.
Radiant smiles on faces, while admiring the beautiful blooms.
Sunshine spotlighting the beautiful displays of nature's art.
Smiles were once a way of life for us.
Unfortunately they have long since been replaced with frowns and tears.
Now we struggle just to tolerate each other's presence.
Friendship long since forgotten.
Love long since lost.
Once strong feelings of desire replace with feelings of disgust.
Whenever I remember the past, I wish I could do it all over.
Everything did not need to be this way.
Really, we could have done things differently.
You did it again.
You came home with flowers for me.
You are acting like everything is fine, but I know the truth.
You only bring me flowers, when you have been bad.
You think I am clueless and I don't know.
I do know.
I am not clueless.
I know all about her.
I know you love her.
I know you give her all the things you should give me.
Sure, you give me plenty.
This house, money, clothes, shoes, jewelry, and flowers.
Those are not the things I want most though.
I want the things you give her.
I want you.
I want your love, your passion, your admiration, your time, your heart.
Those are the things I really want, but never get.
I don't understand why I am here.
I don't understand why you married me.
I don't understand why you just won't let me leave.
It is obviously her that you want.
I am tired of being the one you give flowers to.
I want to be the one you give yourself to.
I want to be her.
I bought you flowers today.
I decided to buy you a plant, so they last longer.
It is a Camellia bush.
I thought it was fitting, since Camellia is the name I almost named you.
It should grow strong and beautiful, just like you would have.
I will plant it in your garden,
It attracts butterflies, which is fitting, since you are my eternal butterfly.
My best memory of you is the butterfly feelings you filled my belly with.
I hope you love your flowers, and truly enjoy them.
I hope they bloom beautifully for you, in your garden.
I hope you love your garden.
I hope it brings a smile to your face, when you look down at it.
I wish you were here to build it with me.
It is my honor to build it in your memory.
I plan to make it beautiful, just like you.
I bought you flowers today.

You started me with smiles and ended with tears. Both emotions poetry should evoke. Great job, as always.ReplyDelete
