Wilted Flower

The flower in the vase     By the window sillGave us air to breathe as it grewBeauty to look at in all timeTaken advantage of     It was pickedAnd there it sits in the windowWilting slowlyBut sooner than it shouldI weep for that beautyAs it was take. Advantage ofIll never forget that flower     And where it satIll never forget the tears as each       petal fellI keep one in my pocketTo remind me    Of all that she was It's the little things overlooked    The violence understatedThe neglect we ignored    The love we always hatedAnd Even through it all     It's something I've always appreciated
