I’ve Bought Flowers - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

You’re not far from this place,
But our separation is canyon-like.

Did you know I was grieved
For the sound of your voice
And the scent of your hair?

I’ve bought flowers
That I later tossed into the trash
Because I knew you would not accept them.

    Spare, and beautiful. This one caused the hairs on my neck to rise. So perfect, so economical. - Will (Report) Reply

    Sometimes brevity is beautiful. This is one of those times.

    Great imagery, the brevity underpins a powerful complexity of emotion. Rgds, Ivan (Report) Reply
