last petal

and as
the last petal
falls free
to the ground.

it floats gently
lands softly
in that moment
of silent agony.

beauty
is gone
from the world
as we know it.

it wasn’t as if
it hadn’t tried
to maintain
its luster.

gravity
has a way
of breaking
every damned thing.

you just feel it
more
in the dark heart
of sorrow.
