Purple Petals

Caught somewhere between child and adult

Sitting on the cold concrete with you..

You make clear how we’re neither at fault

Excuses rolling off your tongue, faster they spew.

Smirking as they rush in a flurry

Attempting to let me down gently.

Finding it comical how you think I worry

I toy with the purple petals intently.

So, here is the rub of it all:

If I’m to be true,

I’m not going to squall

But, rather, pleased we’re through.
