The Rose

Bathroom floor,

thoughts scattered

jittery

The rose

is on the counter.

Confused,

shocked,

speechless.

The rose

is on the counter.

His eyes,

transfixed.

me?

The rose

is in his hands.

Seconds,

wave,

gone.

The rose

is in his hands.

Talking,

smiles,

and laughter.

The rose

is in my heart.

Together,

he and

I.

The rose

is in my heart.
