I pick off pedals from
flowers one by one
and the words I say are simple,
I go till the flower's gone.

So i go and go even though
I know it's not true.
But I try to stop it but, I
can't it's so hard to.

I'll keep going thinking about
your smiles and eyes.
I think about how i want to be your favorite hello and hardest good-bye.

So the pedals on the floor
what do I do?
I'll leave them till you finally
figure out they're for you.

Wow. This poem is so cool!When I read it, I first thought of the whole "He loves me, he loves me not" scenario. Is that what you meant by it? If not, well, it's really good anyway! I think I might just have to quote this poem and show it to my friends. =) Good job!
