Wilting Wildflower

Sunlit Petals

You are a wilting wildflower

And I am opening the curtains

Welcoming the sun in

To dance upon your petals


Your eyes are on the floor

Your name on my lips

I know I should have

Crossed arms and

Closed hands but

I am clinging to

The noose that is

Your attention anyway


The letters tangle

The words blur into

Muddled thoughts and

Breathless feelings

Because what is this

If not jumping from a bridge

And hoping I don't hit the ground

That I can so clearly see

Waiting to shatter me
