A Waltz Wave: Tulips Die

His
tulips
die
petal
by petal
while on
his
dying
lips last words
lie fevered. His
boy friend moves
near to
hear:
“This world
is pain, but
wait till
you
see what's
next.”

  1. “This world
    is pain, but
    wait till
    you
    see what's
    next.”
    This is deliciously ambiguous:-)

  2. Oh, this is just so painful to read...slow death and the despair of seeing a loved one die.
