Poetry – Withered Pink Rose

In this free verse poetry, “Withered Pink Rose.”

Relationships can be a fickled thing, an emotion that far reaches the means of understanding love. In all our imperfections somehow we can make it work. It’s that twinkle of eyes half-lid glances, that smile that ignites sparks. A little more in this free verse poetry and digital art piece.

…Withered Pink Rose…

I don’t know if I am the pink rose,
Withered, and thirsty,
And broken in more places,
then I could be whole.
And you are the water,
which seeps through to my roots,
And reviving my beauty again.
Or if I am the water
and you’re the withered rose,
that is too scared to toss
aside dried petals and leaves
and be bathed in my quenching
until you forget that you,
were ever broke in the first place.
I don’t know, and I don’t think,
I will ever know.

A free verse poetry.

A guy walks into a local floral shop and buys one pink rose, and ignites the petals of love. And little buds began to grow.

  1. Astounding and I am totally spell bound. The way you have described ones perception of love and how each one amidst the two perceives it is simply gorgeous… I would rather revive my beauty again than be scared to toss my dried petals off! 😉

  2. This was beautifully written. I like the confusion given based on who is the flower and who is the water. I find that in almost every relationship we encounter, we can be the withering flower starving for the water of life. While, we may be the giver of life with the thirst quenching love/water. Keep doing yo thang girl!

    1. Nat, I read your post. It makes me wanna cry. A deep felt place where I too have been. Through many torn and trials of relationships and life I have learned. Life lives and learns under skin, true self is strength its own.
