[Poetry] White Petals

A chilly breeze plucked a white petal off the tulip sitting at the open window.

He loves me.

A second plucked petal floated with the breeze before coming to a rest on the damp soil.

He loves me not.

The flowerpot trembled as a stronger wind burst through the window panes, scattering petals in the air.

He broke my heart.

A thunderous gust flung the flowerpot across the room, shattered the clay and showered the floor with soil.

So I’ll break everything he’s got.

Revised and rewritten. I’ve been revisiting my older poetry and writings lately, since it’s been hard to focus on writing something new. How’s everyone else doing today?

  1. Powerful. You packed a lot of punch into a small space. I love your quote from Cyril Connolly, too. β€œBetter to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.”

    I agree!
