We are planted together
roots underground
intertwined.

we share water
and you so generously
shade me with your leaves.

and even in the summers heat
when I am beneath you for shade
i wish to be closer

and even in the winters edge
when you are bare and I am gone
i wish to be closer

and though our roots wrap among each other
and you taste but sweet nectar
i wish to be closer

but this feeling
is unreachable
unless I grew inside you
