    Is there anything more pitiful than an
    unfinished poem?

    Perhaps the daisy that was too small,
    to be in the bouquet.
    Perhaps the word left defiled of its
    true meaning, and instead misused.
    Perhaps the mole, for never seeing
    the wonderous light of the sun.

    More likely, though, it is the reader
    who suffers. Forever will he wonder
    what came next.

      "Forever will he wonder
    what came next."

    --The inverted syntax of your closing statement was awkward to me. I've read through this and think (personal opinion here) that maybe changing it to:
    "He'll forever wonder
    what came next."

    --could work better for this poem overall, and give it a more 'modern' touch, as opposed to the more Victorian English I'm reading here. I only say this because there's no other obvious syntax inversion in the preceding parts-- nothing obvious anyway.

    As for the poem's theme, yes it's one that's been overdone, but you've given it freshness through your wording and metaphors, relating it to a daisy and a mole. I'm actually all for using themes that have been done to death, as long as there's a unique twist to it that sheds light on it in a different way, which you've done. Subvert themes, use clichés etc etc and make it your own...

    One other thing-- in these two parts:
    "Perhaps the daisy that was too small(,)
    to be in the bouquet."

    "More likely(,) though,"
    --I'll question your commas in parentheses, just because, when read out, I either naturally pause at the end of the line in the first example, or else read through without a pause in the second.

    But hey, again, just personal preference here, which you're free to use or dismiss as you will.

    An interesting short poem.

      at first,

    i thought that the subject matter was overused...so i was disappointed after reading the first line...

    but once again,

    you surprised me, and made me shake a finger at myself for judging before reading the entire thing...

    your description in the middle was unique and beautiful....and you just get extra points for mentioning a mole and sunlight, because it reminded me of one of my favorite movies...

    the ending...

    while good, went back to the overused subject matter...but...from personal experience, the reader always wonders what came next....

    i however thinks it's the writer that suffers...because once the moments gone, the poem is gone...and his wonderment of what came next is greater than the reader....since the reader came in with no expectation....

    you have yet to be predictable...
