It's likely the change in the environment has stressed the plant and it is conserving resources by not continuing to bloom. It went from the high light outside to lower light inside. The temperature changed and so did the humidity level. Some plants are more sensitive to these abrupt changes than others.

Next time you bring stems inside, give them as much light as possible and increase the humidity with a pebble tray under your vase or misting the stems daily.

Also, when you put any flower in a vase, recut the stems about an inch at an angle under water to prevent air bubbles from entering. Remove all the leaves below the water line as they will foul the water quickly. Change the water daily to rid of bacteria buildup.
