Poppies - Poem by Kristina Louisa Carr

Spread out bright red silky fragile petals
Folded together tightly like sheet metals
Become masses of delicate flesh and blood
Heat is rushing through veins like during a flood
When water is dripping from the petals to the stem
It turns to a silver teardropp like a precious gem

Teardrops collected from a beautiful flower
I let run over your shoulders during night hour
It will form a river of sorrow down your back
Because there is nothing left to seal the pact
In the morning you will forget what took place
And all evidence of our love will be erased

Evidence is the one thing we can't afford to keep
Because what happens here stays here and sleeps
Another time we can awaken our passions again
But for now feelings and words we have to detain
I watch while the taxi is leaving really slow
Passing the meadow where the poppies grow
