the girl who ate your flower

He came to her
Eyes toward the ground
And flower in hand
Speaking in muffled sound

A single rose he gave
To the captor of his heart
Face red with untarnished innocence
Then came the next part

She took the rose from him
And devoured it with a smile
This shocked  the little boy
Who stood stunned for a while

Then he ran away crying
Tears of first heart break
Which left the uncouth girl
To ponder her mistake

What wrong had she done?
A rose was offered as affection
And did she not fully accept it
Into herself in whole completion?

Thus his sudden flight
Seemed but a cruel taunt
To the saddened little girl
Whom loneliness continues to haunt
