she has a rose tattoo on her arm
she says it doesn't mean anything; it's just pretty
but i'd like to think it represents her
she's fragile but beautiful
a few thorns here and there to scare off the ones not strong enough to still love her
her petals are soft and gentle but she's scared to bloom completely
for when someone finally picks her, she's afraid she might not get put back in water
they'll pick her and find beauty in her until they wonder why they chose that one
and drop it with no care
no water
no sunlight
no soil to spread her roots in
she says it means nothing
but it means everything to me
because she's the girl with the flower tattoo.
