nameless poem, suggestions please

Posted to Utterances

i bought a rose for you, one and not two
i bought a rose for you to remember me by
i sought the perfect flower, with an odd number of petals so you would love me, rather than love me not
i asked the florist if it existed but she told me it did not
i confess i stole a petal from your rose
and kept it solely to myself,
but my soul knew it couldn't make a flower perfect, so instead i hid it from you
