Delicate

A Chapter by Ana Papaya

~•
Petals fell softly around
love me and love me nots
leaving something beautiful
     vulnerable 
stripped and bare

because this is what love does
  it destroys 

and I, a delicate beauty 
shy as a tulip afraid to open
 need some coaxing 

  I can feel your love 
waiting
to destroy me

I love your final lines here, Ana. In many ways it rings so true for many. Still, I couldn't go a lifetime without taking a risk for love. When it comes to fruition its the best feeling in the world. An appropriate title and your words do it justice. A fine addition.

Oh hell yeah! This is so spot on, I fell off my chair. It is utterly dance-like, the way your message lightly approaches "the kill" of your main point/ending. We feel like maybe the narrator is conjuring up the courage to try again (hope being so irresistible sometimes) but someone who's jaded in love is bound to end up exactly where you ended up. This is so powerful! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Written by a heart that has been badly bruised. Powerful last lines Ana.
Good morning, hope all is well in your neck of the woods :))

So much hurt in these lines. Love sadly can cause damage, but it needn't be permanent. A life without love is nothing. It is worth taking a risk instead of hiding inside a shell. There are happy endings.

Hi Chris, thanks so much. :)
And now as I hear myself speaking aloud, "she loves me, she loves me not", I will consider the little flower shouting "What about me a*****e! Don't I get a say?"
Your last line sums up all this love malarkey perfectly.
And on the plus side Ana, some lovely, fresh pot pourri is yours, free 😀

Never!!!!! :)
such a sad piece...the heart so destroyed...that picking the petals from the flower is merely a formality because we already know the result...in our minds we won't let the heart be torn off that petal...we just assume the worst..

Thank you kindly, Jacob. Always appreciate your visits and comments.
Love can sure take you up and spin you around.
Love can tear you to pieces, but would you change it, no, we all want involved.

That, my friend, is a very good question.
Maybe don't rip the flower apart for starters.
