Three Petals (and a bee) This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

One
Burst into flames.
I had to throw
The ashes in
My dinner plate.
The sun ate it.
And I was starved
To death.

Two
Cried.
Swallowed itself
In a quagmire
Of tears.
I tried to find it.
But ended up
Lost.

Three
Slit itself
Into two.
The blood
Oozed out.
I drank it,
Only a bit.
Got poisoned.

Lost.
Got poisoned.
Died.
I looked
At the three.
Two corpses
Slept silently,
One snored.

The Bee
Looked
At me
With pleading eyes.
Couldn't help it.
So, we eloped.
And I left
Three dead men
Behind.
