I Wish You'd Forget-Me-Not #PrettyContest

July 2, 2020

FREE WRITING

11
    Forget-Me-Not
    reflect the blue of the sky with your cerulean petals
    wash away my tears as raindrops pelt our faces in a timid rebellion
    and paint the forget-me-nots in our memory-filled garden
    I want you to forget-me-not
    for I remember every crook and cranny
    of your tear-filled eyes
    and murky mind
    The darkness threatens to consume your periwinkle blue
    just as light rips me away from you
   
    Forget-me-not, please  
    In your inky bat orchids
    and lemon-yellow dandelions;
    you always cared for the dusty pink chrysanthemums,
    and I was only a milky daisy
    I coated my petal tips in Fuschia
    so that maybe you'd take notice
    but the chrysanthemums are pretty in pink
    and I only feel false

   You are the breathtaking forget-me-not
    (a fitting name, in my opinion)
    your zenith blue petals delicate like smoke
    I guess that's how you slipped through my fingers

    I could never forgive you
    They say "forgive, but not forget"
    I cannot do either
    Your name is a curse to me alone

    You seem to have left me behind
    But I wish you would forget-me-not
Length: 180 words
Yes, this piece is technically a pun based on the flowers forget-me-nots. I hope you like it! This is for the contest #PrettyContest hosted by Chloe :) <3. Have a fantastic night/day!

    I love the play on words here! It's so pretty, and I've always thought forget-me-nots have such meaning for some reason, probably because of the name.

    i'm late and half brain dead so i'm just gonna say this is really pretty. "I want you to forget-me-not" the pun is kinda obvious but you write it so cleverly! i could totally use that as a pickup line or smth. "you always cared for the dusty pink chrysanthemums / and I was only a milky daisy" stunning imagery you're too good.

    Replying: Well if that's the case, expect me to disappear after September 22nd. There only things I can hurt are bugs. And you're welcome btw. <3

    Also, you are proof that the 16 year olds on this site don't get kidnapped for the whole year (sunny's hypothesis that I agreed with)

    I have no words. This is absolutely stunning. I can't choose a favorite line because the whole concept is so beautiful and wonderfully executed.
