Death of a rose: Day 4

My petals are getting weak, I can feel my weight slipping lower into my glass prison below.

I am beginning to feel a little off-colour, as though my energy is being drained away, leaving my petals bleached white.

I suppose some would say they love this stage of a rose’s life, the fragility, the openness. ‘Full blown’ I think they call it.
