Bitter Petals


Poem 3
Collection of poems created by my daughter, Angela.


Bitter Petals

You said that you still love me
Only, you needed space
But when you came back to me
You left behind the days

Now, all I hear are screams
Between the two of us
What happened to our dreams?
They're lost: they've turned to dust

As I gather the withered petals
Of what used to be,
What happened to our love?
There was nothing I could see

Why did I not understand?
These petals can only wither
They're gone: they've tuned gray in my hand
Like our love which has grown bitter.
