We say we love flowers
And their sweet aroma
Yet we can spend hours
Just picking them up

We ask for their thoughts
As we pick at their petals
About if he loves me
Or he loves me not

And yet we still wonder
Why nobody trusts
When "I love you" is muttered
But have we forgot?

We kill what we love.
“We say we love flowers, yet we pluck them. We say we love trees, yet we cut them down. And people still wonder why some are afraid when told they are loved.”

You're right. We say we love something, yet we hurt it.
I really love this one :heart:. It gives both emotion and reality.

A side of pain in love that we don't see or notice as often! I'm so drawn to your almost whimsical tone of writing and then the weight and harsher messages you are able to project through it. Your voice is so unique! :)

Love is the most troublesome of the human emotion, when we love somebody or something we would do everything they wish and would do nothing to hurt them, yet we could end up hurting them and this not only would make them suffer but make us suffer too.

the last line is very thought provoking. while its true in the flower context I am not sure it extends onto true love. maybe we kill what we love only out of our unconsciousness about the feelings shared between a couple. your poem is very beautiful because it opens a new dimension to understanding one of the reasons when it hurts when it shouldn't
