Discarded Bloom

Written for:  Sunday Muse #213

Her beauty was too fragile
for this world.
At first, tightly curled
inward, then
a delicate opening
of her heart.
She would give her all,
to anyone
who cared.  Bared
her soul, but was tossed away
like a stray piece of trash.
World's loss.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
