A Young Flower

A poem

I failed to kiss on
your forehead
watching your funeral from far.
your body is covered with
flowers.
Nobody knows your body
itself a young flower.
When we met on a rainy night
an owl hoot
from a hidden branch.
you were scared and hugged him.
you didn't know the arms
hugging you was holding a
knife.
He backstabbed on your love.
His owl eyes were glowing
when I cried for you.
It is raining heavily now.
a droplet fell on your eyebrows
and rolled over.
They are going to bury
a live butterfly.
“Tonight,
I can write the hardest
line of my life”*
