I think

- of you.
I pick daisies

- and weave daisie chains too.
You are much better




In your own mind.
And maybe mine too.

But, I'm giving it all away
Way too soon.

Like I promised the daisies, I wouldn't.

Daisies are dainty.
And dainty they


No man.

To come.

And break.

Their hearts.

And turn.

Them strong.

I adore the

And, I trust them.

I,told them, about

They heard my words


The ears you've never seen.

And I picked their

Petals, one.

By one.

Asking if you like me not.

Or like me do.
