your oversized boots

a priceless flower
rare delicate bloom
to be cherished, nurtured
struck from the wilderness
errant grown tumultuous
in unsuspecting soil
wavered in the idolizing wind
could not withstand
the incessant stomping
of your oversized boots
and fell
- crushed.

i awoke in the morning
uncharacteristically clear
cured of my obsession,
the love well 
miraculously emptied
- tortured petals
vanished into the ether.
a thinly veiled wall
of disinterest built
where the blossom had
languished instead.
