"Sad Fairy"

Bright pink flowers carpet
The golden trees.
Two stems plucked from their
High havens,
Adorn the head of a sad fairy.

Two stems dropped
To the ground.
One on the dark causeway under the trees
One placed in a gutter,
To make an ugly thing beautiful.

Days slip by on tender tiptoes,
Alone, the sad fairy walked the route
Of lakeside splendor,
Stopping to gather
Two dead pink stems into her ashen hands,
Placed carefully between two snowy pages,
To keep the past touchable
Forever.

Dead pink flowers carpet
Brown trees,
Dead pink flowers fall
To this earth's floor,
Reminders of the sad fairy walking
Alone....

Very nice imagery. Kind of begs the question, why is the fairy sad?

The fairy is sad because she has made someone else unhappy by doing what she had to do. I should write a follow-up poem about the fairy at night because the fairy during the day is fairly happy, at night is when the dark clouds reign....

..... Is this still about the guy? If you are regretting this much, are you sure it was the right time to do it? Maybe it wont last forever, but it could have been meant to last while it can last. I know that isn't going to help you feel better, but you seem to be really struggling with this.

Yes to the first qustion and the second. And no, that isn't making me feel better. Let's just say, I am very much the poet so that is how I express feelings when I have them. Fortunately, I am not like this 24/7, just often enough to keep writing these poems...
