Dying Flower

a soft fragrance
a happy tone
sun always reaching
every row
row and row of endless flowers
but it constantly misses one

one is left out
saved for a dark black corner
its body soon droops
its petals will fall
it soon is dried out
from head to toe

but no one ever cares
to tend to it
for no one has ever noticed

so the happy sounds of day
and the light of the giving sun
drift away
into a cold and dark night

you can feel something different in the air
you know a tragedy is about to explode
in this sad and lonely night

the flower
only has one petal left to shed
and as the dark night proceeds
darkness and shadows
will consume
all that is left

I smile
But my tears fall
As I grasp tightly
On to my last petal
Because it’s all I have left
