i tried to forget but you planted a seed
in my brain that you constantly watered with thoughts
that i was never good enough.  i tried to forget
but it sprouted between my scalp and
shut my eyes tight and sewed my lips together
without words.  you punctured my trachea to let the
sunlight into my ribcage, my lungs pumping
oxygen to the weeds that grew steadily around my
neck as if you had built me a noose.  and once
its leaves had coiled themselves around the bone
structure called my spine i gave up, because
nausea paralyzed me as your fingers dug deeply into
my chest cavity, looking for the thorns inside so
you could press them into my skin.  i tried to forget you,
but i was soon enraptured by the rose that bloomed
from my brain matter, shouting "we won't sink this time, we
won't sink," but it ended up wilting as the petals
fell down my cheeks.  i counted them: he loves me, he
loves me not.  but i never found out which one it
may have been because you plucked the weed from my
body and i withered up like a tree without water; thank
you for demolishing my life force.
a homage piece to my suicidal thoughts.

I will admit. This is a lovely piece.

The layering you have used in this piece, the use of natural mediums to provide contradictory indicators makes it even more of a good read as well, because it indicates the deep rooted cynicism that defines your sadness.

A well written poem with a very strong end message.
