The flowers of Anhedonia grows upon me,
Its roots engulf my whole being.
Serendipity long lost, Only the remains of this wintercearig feeling inside this small yet feeble vessel.
I don't know what to do or what to say; maybe to fill up that satisfaction I crave.
Mind slowly turning insane,
I keep things to myself, and that's all that I can say.
All the florets blossom in the longing shade;
of darkness that might never fade,

People asked.
"Why are you crying?"

The wallflower sobs.

People said.
"Crying would not help at all, pull yourself together. "

The wallflower sobs.

People left.
Stepping the wallflower.

The wallflower answered.
I want to be better but I kept failing.

The wallflower sobs again.
Did the wallflower cry because of it's own incompetency?
Did the wallflower cry because no one sees the effort?

Or perhaps both?

I’m merely a wallflower
Deprived of sunlight
Breathing the same air
In the same room
longing to belong somewhere
Anywhere but here

What’s the point in pulling me from my roots
When they’re buried too deep
And are far too frail
For only I can aid my bloom

You told me to get some rest
I promised you.
But I can’t sleep whilst I'm afraid to exist
Dreams just give me false hope
But please don't let me sit through this winter alone

And at the end of the night
As you held the weight of my body
You asked me,
Is it repetitive? How you live?
And you watched
as the timid flower shrived in your hands
Feeling lost in life
There's a quiet girl
Living in a noisy world
You might think she's cold
But she just want to be alone

She's always silent,
and always thinking
Her mind is so loud
it always screaming

She wants to be heard
But don't wanna bother anyone
She's just a simple girl
But she's no ordinary  woman

She's always on her own bubble
To prevent anyone to come through
If she feels like she wants to talk
She'll go outside just to be with you.
She's always on her own bubble
To prevent anyone to come through
If she feels like she wants to talk
She'll go outside just to be with you.

Paint stained yellow ******
a suitor popped her flower
she dropped off the wall
unhinged full of power

This is all normal
Petting dogs and
Nodding at strangers
Holding the door open
Sometimes it makes me
Go underwater and cry
Where my tears blend in with
Sometimes I wonder why I’m
Wondering why
We want joy
I sit so naturally perched on
A tall naked tree branch
That’s in a grey sky
With a vague horizon
And quiet brisk air

That introvert girl who loves solitude,
Simple girl that have a nice attitude.
A genuine person with a gratitude,
Just like an angel, elevating on altitude

She's one of the girls in high school
Different from those fool
At first glance she's cool
But she's stronger than a bull.

That introvert girl full of mystery
It's hard to understand her story
A riddle always brings misery
Need to answer to leads you on victory

It's hard to know an introvert person
She's always on her comfort zone
Its easier for her to talk on phone
That introvert girl love's to be alone.


That introvert girl
who likes to be alone
You might think shes cold
But shes a nice person

Shes so Beautiful
Like a morning light
Shes so kind
Like a silent night

She's not telling a joke
But she makes me laugh
She's not my ideal type
But she makes me fall in love.
Its easier for her to talk on phone
That introvert girl loves to be alone

( You saw the title , so please go on ahead and skip me.)

Oh... you clicked on me , I see....

Honestly though, don't mind me , i'm just here camouflaged masterfully into the screen page

My opinion ? , my voice ?  , it need not matter, i'm just here for the sake of it, besides anything I utter isn't heard or acknowledged....

so please I insist continue somewhere else and pretend i'm not here

What am I about ?

....Nothing really to be honest ,

..... look I feel a bit stifled here so please can you just go away , I know you're trying to be nice but i'm just not in the mood

Please please , will you go away I don't need to be judged or scrutinized by you ,

sooo please leave okay ....

i'm just an unimportant poem who you will forget about and stop reading ...

Oh my gosh, what is the point of you still reading ?

i'm not going to rhyme for you , and clearly i'm not that 5-7-5 syllable poetry style, what is it called ?...

you know what never mind just go please...

Still here... sigh....

I apologize for my rudeness , i'm not one to talk much to others, in fact when you really think about this, this is you reading me and me not actually talking ,

I do enjoy my own company but hey, who doesn't right ?

...And please don't assume i'm a loser or a nobody

because I. am. Not.

I am a hidden gem, who you probably have never heard of, my talents are untold myths...

I may be in the background but I observe and keep it moving,

Must I be involved in everything ?

Your humble florets hug the rough-hewn stone,
Your yellow sunbursts shock against the gray,
All tangled up together, none alone
As, stem to stem, you ward the morn away
Reminding me of duties for the day:
To comfort those who suffer all alone,
To stand with those who struggle on their own,
To see an obstacle and find a way.
It's toil, travail, and trouble for no pay,
But look how far we've come and how we've grown -
A wallflower's a humble thing to be,
But tangled all together, they are strong.
The bonds we forge in striving, all as one,
Enduring tests? They will not be undone.
"Faithfulness through adversity."
Flower languages are lovely things. Perhaps I'll properly complete a cycle on some favorite flowers.
