Silent Pleas

She thought daisies and daffodils would fill the emptiness inside Painted smiles masking private pain She didn’t notice the small crack near the base A tear slipped through, soon followed by another. Flowers wilted and dried, The Sun too harsh when water became scarce. A fresh bunch of blossoms soon followed suit. Someone please fix this wound, The vase silently pleaded. Alas, no one seemed to listen No one saw the fatal flaw Dozens of roses, lilacs, and mums Dried up and died, one by one. The crack slowly widened, Tears no longer contained Leaves trembled and petals fell Into a pool amassed on the mantel, Where a picture lay forgotten.
