I plucked you from a meadow because I was transfixed by your beauty.
As you sit within that vase, I gradually watch you die.
The tips of your petals begin to change from yellow to brown. Your stem becomes weak and you fade away little by little.
I did this to brighten my own life. Yet it now feels darker.

This is a unique twist to a metaphor
that has been written of before,
I can't get enough of this poem
and just how beautiful it is.
There is so much beauty and sorrow
mixed within this rich little poem- its just wonderful!

In just five lines there is beauty, feelings and a little warmth
with an ending and a truth that all good things come to an end
and that applies in every aspect of life doesn't it....take care
Congrats on the Win :)
