I drink way too much tea (with three sugars might I add), I like hugs a lot & thesaurus.com happens to be my best friend. It almost seems like the older I get, the more introverted I get.

you say it hurts.
your eyes itch more than ever;
the sneezing never stops
you want no more pain-
but I always loved your cream roses.

you threaten to kill it.
spread poison across the soil,
watching it seep into its roots
shrivelling up, colour now fading-
but I always loved your cream roses.

you like winter a lot.
i guess it' because the buds disappear,
the thorns its last prickly reminder;
it's future now mostly bleak-
but I always loved your cream roses.

you give up in spring.
packing your things stubbornly,
you know you should've killed them;
the colour teasing you tenderly now-
but I always loved your cream roses

    i love the imagery here. "spread poison across the soil" and "the color teasing you tenderly now," i love those lines :)

    (p.s. i am absolutely dying at your alternate title)
