Wilted.

the wilted flower weeps
tears in the silent
rain

the beautiful flower
with an ominous
fate

such an ugly flower standing
beside the proud
crimson rose

too ugly in comparison
not pretty compared to
the forbidden rose

the flower weeps
it's angelic white petals
wilting

it knows it can't compare

it would rather die
than feel the shame

angelic white bleeds
black as it crumbles
to silent ashes

it gets its wish and dies

not good enough
to compare to the
beautiful rose

not good enough
for the guilt ridden
rose

the rose weeps silent tears
fully aware of its role in the
white flower's demise

it feels so filthy as it watches
the white turn to ash

red weeps tears of
crimson remorse
