death

Location

today, i favored a flower.

she was not like another.

crimson and yellow.

royal and real.

 

today, i favored a flower.

it took time to realize she was bizarre.

flaming and hot.

cruel and sick.

 

today, i favored a flower.

she was a dark reality.

spinning uncontrollably and miserable.

a cold phenomenon and yet so true.

 

today, i favored a flower.

it took time to realize she was everything but a flower.

a humanist and sad.

emotional and corrupt.

 

today, i favored a flower.

she is the twisted side of society.

beautiful and toxic.

erotic and wretched.

 

today, a favored a flower.

i watched her burn into flakes.

i eventually knew what she was.

hell on earth.

the sick thoughts in my head.

a drunken substance.

death.
