A Flower For You

on tangled hair
you lay there alone
you bite your nails
you laugh so hard
on your hazy lines
you dance you sing
you cry you laugh
on moods that swing
like a crazy pendulum

you say my name
without remembering
what love was there
once, everlasting

you vomit
what we had and
then you swallow them
all again

i cry seeing you
like this
away from your senses

i hand this flower
for you
the smell may make
you return
from day one
when you were real
when you still feel

Sad poem, yet well-written. A lot of compassion displayed. Thanks for sharing and also CONGRATS. Well-deserved 'poem of the day'! Beautiful poem. Rightly ruled as 'the poem of the day'. During the course of life, we, sometimes, feel robbed of our prized possessions. Then, we rise and make an effort to regain our composure.
