A Flower

By Crush_With_Eyeliner

I envy

your clothes.

The way

you fold


in blonde.

  • A former member wrote: hmmm I saw a blond woman folding her clothes lovingly...nude, of course.... I like the way the flower folds the clothes, perhaps.... and the color... the brightness of the blond...... leaves one as if shining upon the flower... when one opens by folding... the paradox of love.... what is there not to envy... to be at the hands of such an one. very nicely crafted *bows*

    I got a fully different view on this than what seems to be the general consensus...makes me wonder if I totally misread it. But to me it was laced with sarcasm...one of those snarky "shhhhh...you're so pretty" things..lol. like, "I envy how you're so simple that even your clothes seem blonde". but I think I might like the alternate interpretation even better.

    I could tell you what it literally was about, if you'd like. I'd prefer to leave that all up to you. Birthday suit, huh? That's....interesting....

  • A former member wrote: okay, i guess i got it wrong, pictured a beautiful girl in her birthday suit ( i envy your clothes) with blonde hair...dont explain what it really is, i wasnt smart enough to get it the first time

    that's the beauty of poetry. It's not about "smart" or "not-so-smart"...it's completely subjective. And I like to be at least partially ambiguous as far as meaning goes. These words are about a feeling I had, fleetingly, today. The words convey that feeling, as best as I can describe it. It's fantastic that you can perceive of it in a different way. Like the way instrumental music effects a person. I appreciate your input, and value above all the fact that it made you think or feel something. Don't sell yourself short..
