Wallflowers

all things left unsaid

Wallflowers divulge their secrets

only when you idle and listen

with the diligence

of a lighthouse keeper

and the patience of a mother

whose youngest learned

how to tell stories

but still knows nothing

about endings.

We will whisper our findings

because most lonely

souls feed

on subtle comforts,

and we must beg the Universe

to send careful lovers,

who understand

why introverts pretend

to enjoy distance

because it is sweeter than

social mayhem and

competition

— a revolving

chaos that always leaves

us feeling dreary

and wanting for

something only discovered

in forgotten corners,

so we grow there: wallflowers,

silent observers, experts

of all things left

unsaid.

    I loved this. I loved the subtlety of it and the depth. Wallflowers are traditionally the forgotten and yet, there is something here of strength and patience which that reputation negates. I'd rather be a wallflower.
