I am a flower

And my friend the sun 
Has gone away
Why, I do not know
 
Without my friend 
I don't quite thrive
My roots shrivel
My leaves die
 
Desperately reaching toward the sky
Trying to see my friend one last time
My petals fall
And gather on the earth 
 
My stem thins
And is no longer green
I draw in upon myself
To protect what little heat it left
 
A pathetic reminder
Of someone gone
Whom I wasn't enough for
Someone who left me
 
My petals are gone
My leaves are dead
My roots are dry 
And my stem has curled
 
The sun has come back
To laugh
At my empty shell
To see the damage it's done
