33 (who?)
I want to pluck off every one of her petals 
and leave behind the shell of a flower.
He loves me

I want to rip out every piece of his hair
and make him ugly,
so she won't call him beautiful anymore.
He loves me not.
My submission for :iconhumanconditions: They Love me/They Love Me Not Contest.

Check out this journal for details:
They Love Me? A ContestNew Contest!
We missed having a contest for the Holidays season, but I'd still like to have one.
The first and the last one were so successful, and some great art and literature came out of them, that I just couldn't wait much longer for us to have our third contest.
Contest Information
:heart:What Is It? The name of the contest is "They Love Me/They Love Me Not."
:heart: Who Can Participate?  All literary and visual members.
:heart: What Length For The Literature?  It doesn't matter if you write poetry or prose or flash fiction, your entry should be long enough to deserve a prize.  So no one stanza or flash fiction that is so short that it really doesn't reflect the positive or negative thoughts about love. It must be a new piece, dated February 3 or longer.
:heart: What About The Visual? All visual should be new and  on theme. It can be of any media. The contest will be 6 weeks long so that the painters illustrators can create something

This one is about love and betrayal. Emo, I know… but it was something I wrote in the throes of both emotions, and I like it. You?

2nd place winner!  If you have a moment, you should check out the other winners!

Loves Me? Loves Me Not, Contest WinnersThank You
I want to thank all of the members who participated in  the "Loves Me? Loves Me Not" contest. Every entry,  literature  as well as visual, had a  very unique way of looking at the emotion, "Love". I truly admire,  the creative approach each member took to reach deep into their heart to find the right way to express their feelings. 
Below are our winners and three deviations from each gallery. I am also featuring all of the contest participants
Congratulations  To  All  Of  Our  Visual  Winners In  the "Loves Me? Loves Me Not" Contest

I love it. The way you make the old flower petal pulling and turn it on its head.
