Who is she? (II)



I was a budding flower.

Yes, you heard me right.

I was.

I’ll tell you

What I mean.

It was almost time for blooming.

They forgot that I was

To be exposed to sunlight.

What remains today

Is only a lifeless body.

I’m still a part of the plant

Which because of me

Would have been called beautiful

By everyone.

But because of me,

The plant is rejected

By everyone.

I am a corpse.

    1. There is always a real connection to whatever all of us write. We take contexts from our life experiences, whatever we read in books, know about other people’s lives and see in our surroundings and in the world as a whole. So yes, there are real connections here and there.
      Could you relate the poem with yourself, even if in bits and pieces?

  2. Another strongly put together poem. I love the straightfowardness in your poems, if you get what I mean 🙂 It’s like you aren’t beating around the bush and saying exactly what needs to be said! ❤
