Love This Flower!

Love This Flower!


Roses are red Violets are blue But not like the flowers I give you. Everyday I come see you You never comment about the flowers I give you. You acknowledge them Without voice At least you care about the flowers I give you. But my words Must not be true You do not like the flowers I give you. Can't get a reply? Enjoy ignoring me? Just tell me if you like them The new flowers I give you. Too bad They look like you Really, they do Pretty flowers I give you. It is my fault Was caught up This is my "sorry" The flowers I give you. Got you hooked Heroin killed you HIV infected you I regret it all. Do you love these flowers? Your grave is tired of them! On my knees I give you My promise No needle will befriend me Ever again, Flower. It already took My best friend. Devin T.
