Painting Petals

Post by FordBenjamin » Wed Jul 31, 2019 8:07 pm

I haven’t seen where the flower blooms. I keep my eyes closed on the days in between. I'll never cross the distance to visit the specters in their entirety.

Behind my eye, another prick of pain as a single drop of blood flushes from my eyelid. On the first day of every month, another prick drips away. One globule of blood flows down to the stamen and colors another petal.

Roses this year. One year ago, I think it was carnations.

I don’t mind being milked for the beauty of this world. I sickly appreciate the pressure of the sacrifice.
