Transient

Smashedflower

Stepped on but not broken.
Your beauty turns to melancholy
as the pure, brilliant white
begins to fade.
You look up at me
never asking to be picked up.
I stare down at you.

This moment becomes ours.

Someone had been so cruel.
Now, bruised in your puddle of tears.
Damaged but still capable.
I release you from circumstance.
Holding you up, briefly.
I glance over and see your origination.
You hitchhiked onย the winds
of fantasy.

The trip was exhilarating.
You traveled so far
and viewed so much.
I cannot save you through selfish passion.
You will justย burn more quickly
than basking in the sun.
You made your peace
so I drop you.

For a moment
weย lament.
