Love <3

I’ve planted a flower for you.
In a field. It’s been covered up
By a glass box.
Safe.
But one day
I decided she was
Strong enough
To be uncovered
Strong enough
To face the world.
The flower stands tall
For a day.
But then
A girl
Holding hands with
You
Stepped on
And killed
My flower
Her name was
Love

You tried to fix it
You bought me a
New flower
Named Friendship
I liked Love better.
But I’ll make Friendship work.

Ahh. Nice meanings good beginning, but the symbolism didn't seem to play to the poem well toward the end. 5.2/10

Well, the way this was written was pretty much the truth but I made the feelings flowers. Because yeah, this actually happened. But thanks for your comment! I appreciate it! Mao.
