Jealousy. A self destruction.
The flower which failed to realize her own angelic white beauty and envied the ones pigmented. The envy grows till is burns and rots her. At her end she realizes, she was indeed once beautiful.

White Once More

Once on a spring morning

Once on a spring morning Sprouted a seed destined to be white

Once on a spring morning Sprouted a seed destined to be white Pure as snow;

Once on a spring morning Sprouted a seed destined to be white Pure as snow; no scratch, no fold.

A resting dove, thick stemmed, in the wilderness.

However her thoughts could never be as saintly.

Born with a jinx to never realize artistry of the craft

Born with a jinx to never realize artistry of the craft that crafted her.

A discoloration,

A discoloration, A smudge so bland.

A discoloration, A smudge so bland. Thin like papyrus, no eye stopped to look by.

A discoloration, A smudge so bland. Thin like papyrus, no eye stopped to look by. Literal with no hues.

Her thoughts filled a swelling envy

It grew precariously,

It grew precariously, As her eyes clung like serrated claws; to the visage to her right.

Pink peonies, crimson petunia Their fluid velvet dresses and robes

Masters of flaunting. Those attired in emerald filigree. Sprays of ichor and rubies

Exuding an earthly scent of mature nectar.

The lump of envy grew ever so large

The lump of envy grew ever so large Leaking out, the poison burned her

The lump of envy grew ever so large Leaking out, the poison burned her black

Sizzling beneath what was once angelic.

Sizzling beneath what was once angelic. Now black as bronze in whimpering sunlight.

Inching grease engulfing limp folds.

Inching grease engulfing limp folds. As she let out the last breath

A muffled bloody screech

Through it she wished.

A wish.

A wish. The one to be the same white

A wish. The one to be the same white once more.
