I'm following the trail of petals falling from your lips
Each time I try to hold one it withers away

I keep painting your happiness into my eyes
But I'm never the flower in your hand

You belong to another garden
Despite your bouquets being met with an upturned nose

My heart bloomed and grew
Vines of emotion wrapping around my mind

I'll try to be content with staying behind
Sink my roots into different soil

It's the way I know I should be
A dust-covered floret lost in time

    Wow! This was such an interesting take on the prompt! I love how you use flowers to symbolize super complex stuff! *faints*

    I think this captures the feeling of detachment very well. I like the way you've described the feeling of trying to capture something only to have it wither away. My favourite lines from this poem: "I keep painting your happiness into my eyes / But I'm never the flower in your hand"
