Forget Me

Please don’t bring me flowers
they won’t help me forget
they only bring sadness

you’d like me to forget
how you caused this sadness
love fades like plucked flowers

ripped from their roots, sadness
crushes lifeless flowers
of course they can’t forget

So take your dead flowers, forget me and leave me to my sadness.

This is in response to Jane Dougherty’s Poetry Challenge, to write a Tritina based on this gloomy painting. Jane suggested that we choose three words before starting our poem after looking at the painting. These are the words I chose:
1. Flowers
2. Forget
3. Sadness
