The way you tear me
Limb from limb
Thought from thought,
Stem from stem.
I'm not your petals to yank
So you can figure out who loves you and who doesn't.
Did you forget you made wishes upon me
Leaving my parts to
Flow away
in the wind?
Leaving every bit of me
Scattered
Across the vacant world.
Just spray me with those chemicals, instead.
The ones meant to keep
The ugly
From murdering
The Pretty
