The Art of Gardening

When you left her,

you traded away the sun

in all of its radiant beauty

in favor of a cheap flashlight

whose color you liked better.

Now, only weeds grow

where flowers once bloomed

and you sit alone in the dirt

shining your flashlight at the ground

wondering what went wrong.
