Love is a Flower!

"They say love's a flower, so dig it a hole"-- for some reason, I really enjoyed that opening line; it's a good invitation to your poem. Everything seemed to fit well until I got to "strip off your clothing." That part seemed a little out of place. Also, the ending sounded more suicidal than lovely, which puzzled me.

Other than that, good flow and wording.

Yep that was the point. It's not about love, it's about jealousy. It's about a guy watching his neighbor out their in his fluffy robe collecting his newspaper and sniffing his little roses. High on life like some fairytale while he's facing a crappy existence. From the outside looking in, love stinks. Yeah I got a whole backstory for everything.

Sure I could have made it end nicely but that's too boring and predictable. It's too obvious, that's not real and this site is full of it. Plus I thought no one read my stuff anymore lol. thanks
