A Paper Flower

A Paper Flower

A Poem by Dusty

 A flower of intricate folds

Circling around a paper soul

So fragile

So parched

A flower debloomed

Nursing a torn heart

So simple a design

So hard to replicate

So easy to break

Tears from a debloomed flower

Fall onto a rose

The thorns cut her hands

A single drop of blood

Stains the pale petals

The rose is wilted

Its smell faded away

Its innocence stolen

Now it is empty

Left in the dust

Unable to trust

Wonderful poem, It was well written. Like I've said before, you have a really good way of expressing and using certain words.

Haunting!! The imagery was more than realistic (if that's even possible)! Keep up the good work!!

Thanks! I had hoped it sounded okay. =) I've been told by many others that poetry is not my thing....

This is a very beautiful poem, but kinda sad too. I like how you alluded to both the flower as a person as well as an actual flower. I could actually see the tears fall upon the petals...

great write!
