Red Petal

I stood too close;
felt the wild beating of your heart.
Fear is a tangible thing and
you strike out with cruelty
to protect your heart, that coveted treasure.

A small crimson petal
like a single drop of blood
lies on this barren breast.
My heart, that lush flower is gone;
scattering petals everywhere
in the tempest of terror.
This lone red petal covers nothing,
yet carries all I lost.
