Flower 'X'

written by: Seorin Kae

@SeorinKae

 

Counting the hours
I toss
I turn
I float in a tiny, clouded flower vase
trying to find some form of comfort

the glass tomb
ever growing tighter
suffocates the tiny petals

I long to bloom
as other flowers bloom
and stretch out in the moonlight

I long to grow
And share soft fragrances
caressing,
comforting
lonely souls and wanderers

My heartbeat grows slower
as I drift around in the lukewarm water
And cry my last tears

My dry, yellow petals
reach out for a last drop of rain
that I will never hope to touch again

Something knocks the vase off the little shelf
And the shattering pieces of glass
are lost
forever

as I too
have found My final destination
forever whispering silent whispers

“Don't Pick Flowers“

I too wanted to bloom
I too wanted to live
I too wanted to die worthy of a flower's name

A Rose
A Daisy
A name of My own

Yet I shall never be called upon
again

I am a student(MA) and a teacher with a busy schedule, but a lot of thoughts and sentiment I would like to share.
Through my works I want to capture the beauty we so often observe but don't always appreciate . I want to sketch the heart of the inner being of mankind and shed light in the different colors of love that we don't have names for.
