Falling Petals

Asking for support and not your agreement,

I looked into your eyes


Seeing rejection, a stare blank and cold,

all connection was untied


Words became hollow, our rose only thorns,

a new distance did we share


Alone while together, the ending in sight

—reality laid bare


(Villanova Pennsylvania: August, 2020)
