In Favor of a Glittering Lily Pond Over a Snowy Silhouette

It's difficult to walk away from sunflowers,
With their adoration and life spread
So neatly across their features.
But you do.
 
Because, that adoration isn't for you.
You aren't radiance, you aren't light or heat,
You aren't even visible, most of the time.
And sunflowers hate that.
 
The only jubilee you're familiar with;
The only thing keeping you from
Crumbling into a billion bitter broken pieces--
Those sunflowers, those sunflowers that turn away from you.
 
They just prefer the stars, you suppose.
