the flowers had renounced the leaves
and there I was
caught between a crossfire
with the wind

the flowers
unbottled

the petals were red with unshed colours
and a part of them have darkened

I tipped my own words out of the pages
made room for the fallen flowers
and wrapped them with
the blankness

those flowers that renounced the leaves

they took me home

they wanted leaves
