Heirloom Rose

Heirloom Rose

A Poem by JenniferMarie

He leans in, still face

eyelids falling

my fragrance spills like dew from a leaf

 

you are the sweetest of all the others


 

I gaze at him the way I look at the moon,

and uncurl under shade of a tree

in the quietest moment of afternoon

 

Days pass, I see him

beyond the leafy pool


Do you see me?

You, seated at a table with a woman,

a woman who makes you laugh

all day together

until evening rain begins,

your suit jacket like an awning in wind

 

I have no voice to call

My reach, determined, fails

I am just a face

beyond a window full of rain,

falling like stars.

 

He will come back

Why doesn’t he come back?

 

Because, it is like that sometimes, my friend whispers

 

her hair brushing against my cheek

Thank you. Haha maybe on the edited version :)
Very interesting, this. Is it about the rose? Is there a deeper meaning? Lust? Yearning? Desire? Hmmm, I must mull on this as bit. I like it.

Thank you Clayton.
I felt longing, I felt sadness, eagerness. This is deeply emotional. Very good!

Love the stanza very much:
