You Planted Flowers

They were so beautiful

There on the ground

In the shape of a heart

Like it was your heart

You were giving to me.

You planted them so carefully

Then tended to them for days

What a lovely surprise.



Then they died

Like the pieces of your heart

You stepped on them

Like you did when you said we would part.

Then they rotted

Right there within the ground

They couldn’t scream

Or nary make a sound.

You planted nothing

But a moment you could waste

And me

Someone you would never taste.


So today

I plant my own

After all

I am finally grown.

Don’t wait for anyone

To give me pretty flowers

I live off myself

Not in lovely towers.

You don’t own me

In fact, what do you own?

You are like the fabric

Nobody want to have sewn.
