A relationship is the flower that you thought was beautiful, and decided to pick.  But it’s not enough to just pick the flower, you must give it a home, water it, allow the sun to shine on it.  You must give it the nourishment it needs.  Give it somewhere safe to settle roots.  Because once those petals dry and fall, there is no saving it.  Potpourri is still the result of something that has died, and break-ups don’t smell as sweet.
