A Dear John Letter

Dear Flower Man,

The petals have all fallen
like rotten apples from a tree

The flame in my heart has gone out
like a candle in the wind

The blood in my veins runs cold
like a spring running over the ground

The ice clings to the wires outside,
and the power has gone out

You are a needle, and I am a pin cushion
You are hurting me

It is time for us to part our separate ways
like the waves upon the sand

So don't send me flowers anymore
because I won't embrace them

Don't dial my number anymore
because I won't pick up

Don't come by my house anymore
because I won't answer

I am leaving you
for good this time

The hourglass
is now empty
