Fine and dandy

 

how wonderful, how wild and free they say

before using their cruel fingers to crush delicate petals

no screams, no tears come to reward their viciousness

just a raw moaning deep within that remains unheard

what need? what want drives this savagery?

they bruise skin, yet recall it fondly

and when they blow away seeds and wish me away

do they know my roots are still strong?

do they know I will survive this storm too?
