Petals

The petals float downwards
Into the drifting river onwards
Farther and farther out of reach
And I cry silently as they leave

I am barely holding on
To this room, to this night.
I have postponed the fight
To stare to where they have gone.

The petals float downwards
Into the drifting river onwards
And I want them back
In a world of shaky truth
This is fact, I want them back

The petals float silently downwards
From a dying lilac, tears go with them
Into the drifting river onwards

This is a most evocative piece with a flowing rhythm that enhances its melancholy. Bitter/sweet beauty. love, Allie xxxx
