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

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
