Drabby Trees and Hearts

We could have made
the flowers bloom
if you would have
cherished the beauty
of fallen brown leaves
and the naked branches
of trees baring
tawny rugged skin

but you were a man
of blazing desires
who only saw beauty
in diamonds and sapphires
in shades of brown
you found no appealing hue
and crispy dry leaves
were too somber for you
you always found love
in things flashy and loud
and those which lacked lustre
you would always do without

you wanted flowers to bloom
as soon as seeds were sown
but you never cared to see
that the land was arid brown
I should have guessed by then
that the story was close to its end
for one who didn’t see beauty
in the drabby unclad trees
how could he endear a heart
which has been stripped
of all its sheen.
