I have taken notice of you
in your great state of anguish.
Caressing a distressed, half-dead delphinium.
Consantly nudging petals and leaves,
trying to give back the image of the life
you had once witnessed.

Poor formidable you.
Your lips are drained of youth,
as are the words that spill from them.
They are splinted and limb
often falling to your feet,
and crawling in between
the delphinium's faltering flower clusters.

Oh wow! I love this! I know exactly what this looks like and how it feels! I love how you weave the image of lost luster through the viewing of the death of a flower! It's great! :D
