Keeping Up Appearances

Keeping Up Appearances 

glass eyes shattering
moonlight glow upon this case
withered
a shallow stem
drained of refreshment –
I am parched

green leaves curl
soaking the sun
yet,
my flowers do bloom
image of flourishing,
listen closely-
insides cough,
quietly
silently

drowning in sand
swimming in air,
my petals –
delicate
and beautiful as they are,
flame vibrancy
though skeleton is hollow

digging roots to stand
staying stable,
strong in this dry land
keeping pretty
watching my petals fall
one by one

set in a vase –
forced to call home
a lone flower
swallowed by a bushel,
of cracks

stretching empty roots,
grasping for air,
and those who look on
still see my colorful petals,
spread wide –
to fall
in silence
