12 Petals

The delicate pink rose in my hand has 12 petals spiraling inwards
He loves me
A thorn pricks my finger and blood starts to well up. 11 petals spiraling inwards
He loves me not
A scarlet drop falls to the ground without a sound. 10 petals spiraling inwards
He loves me
A single eyelash falls softly to my cheek. 9 petals spiraling inwards
He loves me not
It is gently blown away by the wind. 8 petals spiraling inwards
He loves me
The sunlight sparkles on the glass. 7 petals spiraling inwards
He loves me not
It casts shadows and rainbows equally matched. 6 petals spiraling inwards
He loves me
Flickering like a candle flame. 5 petals spiraling inwards.
He loves me not
Do you remember my name. 4 petals spiraling inwards
He loves me
The water's surface shimmers. 3 petals spiraling inwards
He loves me not
Glittering like a diamond. 2 petals spiraling inwards
He loves me
Fate decided by the petals of a flower. One petal spiraling inward
He loves me not
A single tear falls slowly from my eye as the green stem falls from my hand. 0 petals spiraling inward.
