Plastic Flowers

I just thought as I looked at the table,
to love I am no longer able.
I look at the vase,
take a second look just in case.
It came to me,
our so called love I now see.
Our love may be fake but forever will last,
despite our troublesome past.
Plastic flowers I stare,
not real but who would care.
Our love is as fake as the flowers,
to revive you would need powers.
Yet fake flowers need no tending,
and love you are not sending.
You can just leave them their,
forever they'll last not needing air.

    Reminds me of "Paper Roses" which was recorded by both Anita Bryant and Marie Osmond. You have good descriptiveness and rhyming here.

    Dear Royal, Fake Flowers. and yet they will Always be there as will be the LOVE In YOUR Heart, the Memories of Your Soul. Spring time when life begins anew is a time to grow strong so the sadness of a leaf blowing lonely in the Fall wind shall not bring sorrow back again. Inhale the New Life of Spring, hold it tightly and carry it with YOU. Paint the Budding Blossoms in YOUR mind, relish the summer rains upon YOU these things will strenghten YOU. LOVE ALWAYS and FOREVER with YOU ...Harry

    This was such a powerful and deep metaphor. I think of long lasting relationships where the love has withered away but they stick at it, living in the same house, not breaking up... almost mechanically saying the daily "I love you's" simply because they don't think it's right splitting up. I enjoyed reading the raw emotions of this piece... very well thought out!

    My Dearest Royal, to me you are not fake at all...I feel bad that the fake flowers brought up some deep imagery of emotions out of you. However I love the way you compared this love that does not feel real anymore to fake flowers. You did a terrific job,... one more thing, no more fake flowers for you.. LOL...xox~ xox~ xox~
