Wilted Flowers

A Poem

Photo by Alisa Anton on Unsplash

All I am is wilted flowers
placed upon your table
and left to age in vain
while life swirls around you
and I become anonymous

These wilted flowers
are symbolic of so much
and emblematic of
this very state of malaise
that we find ourselves in
