Playing with petals

As a gentle girl
pulling petals
from flowers

and whispering:
He loves me.
He loves me not.

with each
purposeful pull
of the flower.

To a woman
twisting, turning,
whirling in despair;

tugging on petals
of an altogether
different variety,

then whispering:
He loves me.
He loves me not.

Wondering why
love has become
so murky, so dark.

Why?
Why Not?
Why Love?

Artist's Description

Nothing to do with my personal circumstances, for anyone curious! For a number of my friends experiencing lack of commitment, lack of interest, and it reminds me in headspace to one I called Bad romance…pick up lines x
Bad Romance – Glee (Lady Gaga song)
