concrete gardens

in which she uses concrete nouns to describe the abstract garden growing in her mind

welcome to the garden


your mind is a garden,
your thoughts are the seeds
you can grow flowers,
or you can grow weeds


the weeds

the flowers

the butterflies
blue art aesthetic black


and you think
my bruised knees
are sort of pretty;
and i think
your tired eyes
are kind of nice;
and when i
first met you,
there was a
garden growing
from a black
hole in my mind
and i thought
the flowers were
sort of pretty;
and i thought
the trees were
kind of nice;
and when the
weeds grew,
there was a
garden dying
from the damaged
soil in my mind
