Petals

 

Loves me. 

Words spoken 

by the sprinkling dust of the southern 

sea

 

Loves me not. 

Hearts broken

when he said he wanted to be 

free

 

Loves me. 

Futures planned

for as long as stars twinkled 

above

 

Loves me not. 

Hopes dashed 

on the ancient alter of our stale

love

 

Loves me. 

Still dreaming 

he would hold me in his arms once 

again

 

Loves me not. 

Withering flower

I hold with thorns, tears, blood and 

pain

 

Loves me

.

Loves me not

.

Loves me

.

Loves me…

So there is hope yet. A beautiful sentiment. Simple but no less impactful. Love is double edged sweet when evenly shared and wretched when one-sided.

Do this with a Dandelion and drive yourself crazy!

I love your unique poetic idea, the seesaw back and forth - love's tide is like the ocean. The second stanza is telling isn't it? Love is a prison. Emotional shackles. We can never decide if we really want to wear them, don't you think?

I don’t have time to think….I’m still plucking at your dandelion. I still haven’t decided if love is worth all this hassle
