What does the tulip mean?

What does the tulip mean?

A Poem by Hotaru Miyuki

What does this mean,
this tulip I hold in my hands?
It must mean something,
but what?
 
I hold it down,
the tulip leans down,
I think about my past events,
thinking that must be it.
 
My true love leaves,
my true friend betrays,
pain runs through my chest,
a hole is not sealed.
 
A petal falls from the flower,
this one's red,
but why just red,
when it's red, black, and white.
 
Red symbolizes love,
the petal falls, like my love,
the petal was a tear,
for lost love, like me.

Clever! I liked it a lot. Of course, especially because it was Twilight related. I love Twilight too =]

I thought that this poem captivated the tulip perfectly from New Moon. I never would have thought to look at the colors and what they symbolize but it was PERFECT! I cannot wait to read more of your writing if they are as great as this.

I like how you took the time to come up with your own meaning instead of relying on what others thought.
Great work!
I find this really interesting.
