No Longer Appealing

From time to time I like to include some of my poetry that I’ve written so that you get a more well-rounded picture of who I am. I entitled this piece “No Longer Appealing,” and wrote it for a contest on Allpoetry.com. The prompt was abandonment and so I took a bit of a divergent view of the subject and wrote from the perspective of a citrus peel. Enjoy!

No Longer Appealing

Left for zest and that at best;
‘twas I who caught your fleeting glance,
but only for the fashion of my impassioned fruit.
For now, discarded, I am left to rot—abandoned.
