purple flowers

I am not tulip –
Purple and so fleeting
I’m the naughty kitten
Eager for your greeting.

I am not goodness
Forever on full shine
I’m the dark undertones
Revealed over time.

I am not lavender –
Fragrant and so healing
I’m a Venus fly trap
Carnivorous, concealing.

I am not a role model
Walking paths so true
I’m a cautionary tale
Beaten black and blue.

I am not lilac –
Delicate and sweet
Neither am I excrement
To be scraped off the feet.

So it seems that I have a series of flower poems. More like one long poem, broken into more. It is spring after all – my silly poems are blooming. 😉

I am not lily –
White as the snow.
I’m messy and tangled
As the weeds you see grow.

I am not heaven
Forever doing things well.
I’m a frightened disaster
Rising from hell.

I am not daisy –
Innocent and pure.
I’m wilted and bruised
No hope for a cure.

I am not paradise
Relaxing in sand.
I’m the blazing inferno
A barren, loveless land.

I am not rose –
Smooth and succinct.
I’m simply the thorns
Bringing blood to the brink.
