I Want You To Buy Me Flowers….

Thanks to FOWC: Forever and Sanaa’s prompt about flowers for partially inspiring this new poem of mine.


I want you to buy me flowers,
Even if blooms as beautiful as
Pink carnations will be
Withered within a week —
A part of me wishes to gripe,
“Why try? We know it’s not
Forever so why create
A scenario for heartbreak?”
Another part is ready,
To take a breath, deep,
Unwilling to safety keep
When it means stifling —
To remember that we
Know not everything.
