daily prompt "breath" - 4/3/2022

wilted

It was like a flower taking its very last breath.

So deprived of all nourishment it had no choice but death.

But in the beginning, it was so beautiful;

But in the beginning, it was so beautiful; standing so tall.

But in the beginning, it was so beautiful; standing so tall. With petals of pinks and purples

But in the beginning, it was so beautiful; standing so tall. With petals of pinks and purples that made people stare in awe.

I remember when we were like that.

I remember when we were like that. When people would compliment us as we walked those city streets.

I felt so powerful being with you;

I felt so powerful being with you; like we were the king and queen everyone wanted to be.

But just like a flower,

But just like a flower, we couldn't live forever.

But just like a flower, we couldn't live forever. And just as the drought came rolling in,

But just like a flower, we couldn't live forever. And just as the drought came rolling in, this thing we called us became shriveled and wilted.

But just like a flower, we couldn't live forever. And just as the drought came rolling in, this thing we called became shriveled and wilted. And there was no other fate

But just like a flower, we couldn't live forever. And just as the drought came rolling in, this thing we called became shriveled and wilted. And there was no other fate except being left there to die.

Our petals that were once so healthy and strong,

Our petals that were once so healthy and strong, lost their brightness and color,

Our petals that were once so healthy and strong, lost their brightness and color, and just had to fall.
