*announcement at the end of this poem, hope you enjoy*

there was a time

when i forced myself

to love a boy

i barely knew.

i forced myself

to let him to invade my thoughts

as i picked hundreds

of flower petals from their stems

whispering to myself

i love him,

i love her not,

i love him,

i love them not,

i love him,

i love you not,

while silent tears

streamed down my cheeks,

like unspoken waterfalls

that held far too many secrets.

that was then.


i want to plant you a garden,

one whose home is the very room

that holds hundreds of wilted flower petals

and oceans of stale tears.

but, through all those years,

i’ve realized that without a bit of compost,

and plenty of water,

the garden i made for you wouldn’t thrive,

similar to how

without an imagination,

i couldn’t love a boy

i never knew.


i will be posting the answers to my q&a this weekend,
