Plant Flowers in My Chest

Plant flowers in my chest
Let earth grow only beauty where my heart feels such pain.
Unearthly blood roses, sharpest thorns, one each for every time I hated, reminding
Us to keep our stay from passing hurt on to others.
Forests of green ribbed petals, bouquets of sheer joy, colors beyond our breath.
Place your cuttings deep, root them in my bony spine for strength
Dig small holes of torment for my loss of friends
Root yourself in my heart
To grow beautiful
Color the world with your love
Death, my flowerpot.
