Forgive me for being completely 

oblivious to your existence


Its just the short time we spent 

together wasn't the most 



True, your crimson flowers

add some spice to the awkward 

patch where I planted you

but now your fat thorns are everywhere


I think you meant something 

for my mom and I at one point

but now,

your unruly stems are a nuisance


So forgive me

for ignoring you,

and your red buds

and your thorny thorns
