You have been the weed in my garden for too long
Poisonous and ugly
Infectious to my growing floral portrait
You have thorns and stick to my hands when
I try and rip you away
So I avoid it
Plant more beauty around you
Hoping this distraction is enough but you’re a parasite to every living thing
One day I wrap my hand around you, ignoring the thorns and the barbs clinging
I wrenched you out of the soil
But nothing grows there anymore.
