All Those Daisies

Daisies torn from the ground.
He loves me, he loves me not.
Petals ripped from their stem.
He loves me, he loves me not.
Daisies captured by the dozen.
I love him, I love him not.
Petals plucked off silently, quickly.
I love him, I love him not.
Fields of daisies gone.
He loves me, he loves me not.
Petals in heaps.
He loves me, he loves me not.
Not a daisy in sight.
I love him, I love him not.
Petals drifting in the breeze.
I love him, I love him not.
Everything is gone.
He loves me, he loves me not.
Except my love for him,
The only daisy left in an empty field.
He loves me, he loves me
Not.

Beautiful symbolism of nature and of life's values in love. The old "he loves me, he lose me not" trick we use to come to a final answer. Awesome, love ur stuff:)

Well I can't say anything that no one else has said about this... but it really is amazing =) I always wondered why people did that in the first place... flowers are too beautiful to destroy on a silly fancy whether he really does love you or not.

This sent chills down my spine. It's very haunting. I have to say this is also my favorite of yours. I can feel the emotions of the girl: enraged, furious, frustrated to know the truth, sadness, and just confused. Love it! :)

So beautiful and so creative! It is easy to understand in context, and the deeper meaning behind it really makes you think. You make it seem like there is a somewhat violent side in the plucking of the daisies, and create a character with the desperate voice of your narrator, which is very unique. I love it!!! Truly amazing.
