50-Word Poems - My first attempt

There are a lot of blogs of 50-word stories. I heart these so badly, but i'm going to try 50-word poems instead - poems are what i lean towards anyway. Would you like to try this? It might be fun to start a 50-word poem blog...if you're interested, let me know! This is my first attempt, just for fun!!

There are no vampire love letters

Inside his book is the
frail flower,
petals sheer from
hundreds of quiet years.
thrown to him
before her deathlessness.

Now sent back in a blank letter,
it rests in her
delicate hands.
She breathes deeply and,
with heavy heart
understands the message.

"you have left me.
All is lost."
