Withered Petals

Published September 18, 2012 by sidmary

A withered petal between the pages,

Is frozen into dust.

A brittle existence before my eyes

That crumbles in the dusk.

A slow sweetness invades my nostrils

Like the dampness of musk.


A fleeting vision crosses my mind;

And its motions suspend.

I navigate my heart and find

A slow evolving trend:

Its me and pain that memories bind

Till heart or life may end.
