I leave chrysanthemums
scattered at your feet on tile floor
like the pencil shavings piled
on your desk.

"The flower of death,"
you murmur;
with Rorschach roses on your knuckles
and the hint of a warrior
in the line of your lips,
you sketch bears with open jaws
and black-shadow eyes
in the margins of your math book
with permanent ink.

The hooded abyss of your gaze
masks everything
you can't bring yourself to say:

Love is short
and prone to fading.

It's a good thing I don't mind breathing life
into negative spaces.

Sooooo the wonderfully amazing chromeantennae lent me some gorgeous lines and I plucked and twisted them into....well, this.

I think the last two lines are my favorite and the comparison of the flowers to pencil shavings on a desk is wonderful too. :)

A neat poem, Beth.  

It's a good thing I don't mind breathing life
into negative spaces.

Fun and well, kinda anti-haunting.  Very nicely done.  :)
