my heart is a garden

by Shruti   May 19, 2020


but then
even my Daisies sprouted thorns
as those venomous words
left your lips.
why were you surprised
when my heart refused to wither
and die

    Daisies with thorns is quite a striking image. It seems you need a gardener to tend those weeds and allow your garden to flourish. :)

    Well written!
