Wildflower #PrettyContest

May 23, 2020


She looked best with flowers in her hair
Bright white daisies woven through the darkest curls
We stargazed together
Laying in field of jasmine and lilac
She was a wildflower
Undaunted by anything and free
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Flowers have no reservation to open up
But I do

She looked best with flowers in her hair
But I was too late to tell her
Flowers wilt, flowers wilt, flowers wilt
She was not buried with flowers in her hair

It was a cold, empty winter
And in the spring, I picked my striped carnations
Pulled them from the ground
And I walked
And I wandered
As far as the world would let me go
When I finally collapsed to look up at the stars
I knew, from heaven, she had grown me a patch of butterfly weeds
And forget-me-nots
Daisy - Innocence/Hope
Jasmine - Sweet Love
Lilac - Youth
Rose (Red) - I Love You
Violet - Forever (also sapphic love)
Carnation (Striped) - Refusal
Butterfly Weed - Let Me Go
Forget-Me-Not - Remember Me
