Pull Petals from a Flower

Published by at 5:35 am under Heartbreak Poems

I am not going to
Pull petals from a flower
To determine if you love me
Every day or every hour.

I won’t be tossed to and fro
By your instability.
So show me when you’ve come to know
Your heart’s locality.

Don’t be shocked if I’m not moved
By your discovery;
Nor be dismayed if I’m not touched
When you tell me suddenly that you love me.

If you cry wolf too many times,
My ears become deaf to your plea;
And I will have to just wait and see
What will come to be.

Trust that has been broken
Has to be built again.
It cannot be grounded
On words spoken in the wind.

Since the words you’ve given
Have proved they have no substance,
My reaction is reserved
To only your performance.

Then over time as your words
Match what you do,
I can again believe that
What you say is true;
And only then can I
Engage my heart.
So until then,
You play your role and do your part
To show me who you are
And how you truly feel:
That you are not a boy playing games
But a man who is for real.

    All the other blogs on display are laruobs of love from a single blogger. 330 Words isn’t. It’s a showcase of writing talent in of itself, featuring submissions from a wide selections of authors (Not me though, I’m awful at fiction. And poetry.).
