petals 

 

when her heart broke 

it was as though 

her lips flapped

upside down

 and split 

into two chapped pink petals

rent 

by wild winds 

who sucked

the blooms right out of her.

dizzily

she spun,

fell,

panicked

through dream-clouds 

who failed to hold

her deathly silent fall.

he saw this happen you know,

saw her pink drizzled

fears 

and caught her

with two gentle hands,

cupped her 

with two gentle hands 

and sang

“I love you, I love you,”

as he taught her how to float

on gentle kisses,

silently,

brokenly… through

sunrises

and on the third morning

her healed lips pattered,

“i love you too”

then she bloomed 

right out of her lips

flew 

right out of her lips

to become  

his  rose petaled

heart.
