My Fatal Flaw

Petals falling from a misunderstood flower,
Once beloved, now left to wither and rot,
I hear its silent screams and cries,
Was it too easy to bid goodbye?


In a dimly lit room,
With just a fading aroma
Of a forgotten fruit,
I lie there hoping for you.

Escaping eye contacts,
Hiding in the dark,
Dark shadows portraying
My new found shadows of doubt.

Petals falling from a misunderstood flower,
Once beloved, now left to wither and rot,
I hear its silent screams and cries,
Was it too easy to bid goodbye?

The final broken promise,
A last soothing lie,
No more dishonest lullabies,
The knife is now in plain sight.

A gush of wind clears my clouds of doubt,
I look into your wild eyes,
I need no more questions to figure you out,
I had let you in, you turned into my fatal flaw.


Felt like writing a dark poetry today…

      1. Well, I meant devastating because when your heroine fell in love there is a level of trust that goes with it. But we uncover lies and deception it is a devastating realization. Does that make sense? I enjoyed this. I opened the notification the second it came through. I also loved – “Petals falling from a misunderstood flower,
        Once beloved, now left to wither and rot,” That provides such perfect imagery.

      3. Thank you for saying that. You did a great job. I also shared it in twitter. Nice work like this should be shared with a wider audience. Funny thing I had just emptied my notification folder & thought I had caught up then I was delighted to see yours pop up.
