Red Velvet Petals

-

One by one—

The red velvet petals

Slowly—

-

Falls

-

Flying away

Carried by the breeze

You love me;

You love me not;

-

They still fall

-

A childhood game

But—

It seeks to comfort me

-

This moment in time

-

Gradually drifting—

Drifting to the ground;

Do you love me?

Or do you not?

-

Say yes

-

Oh no—

The last petal falls

You love me not

-

How can this be?

-

Oh— but what's this?

One petal slowly drifts

It separates; revealing two

I smiled then—

-

You love me
