An Existence Gone Vain


Waiting,
from dawn to dusk,
every petal withered,
inked with stories,
of  pain,
of being forgotten,
of an existence gone vain.

  6. Heart-ripping... the idea of every story being of pain and worse. Very effecting in conveying the state of the flowers... and of humans put in the same situation. So terribly sad...

  7. So much like life itself... a vase full of flowers is a bit like death.
