You placed them on his
nightstand, but he knocked them down;
hyacinths don’t weep.


The author's comments:

Life isn't measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments which take your breath away.

You are only as strong as your weakest link.

Yeah, I've been away for a while :P

I really like the way you used the line breaks in this poem to keep with the whole 5-7-5 thing.
