I love myself

I wish I'd write a minimalistic poem of poppies white with forgetting and fingers of the girl - perfect in her void - that plucks their petals humming and whispering an incantation she does not understand.

I don't love myself

I wish I'd learn the sleep and the dream from these poppies, and I wish I'd dream roses with red thorns for the wanton butterflies of a girl frightened by perfection

Can I love?

Poppies are my roses.

I would love to see this develop more, hear more of what you are trying to say.

I don't...
know why I ever left this site, but then again with a faulty computer that holds my trite poetry, I must say its great to be back and see people who expose themselves with all this emotion, and not afraid to put themsleves out there and I really like this.
