yet they are beautiful, the flowers growing in my lungs are choking me

See him and smile, he only walks away
Grow
Opening petals and creeping up my throat
No one knows
These flowers will be my demise
The flowers blossom out my mouth
The flowers grow in my chest
In my lungs their roots crawl and scratch
Agony 
Feelings rage on in spite of the pain
He doesn't feel the same way
The air floods from my lungs
Gasp
Flourish
He doesn't bother look my way
Like a rose thorn
I worship his every move
Laugh at all his jokes
He doesn't acknowledge my attempts to grad his attention
Like vines slowly draining my strength
Growing from the inside of me to the outside
And though they are beautiful
The flowers growing in my lungs
Are choking me
I took the poem I wrote a little bit ago and just changed up a little of it.

    I love this, the connection between beauty and sadness/pain has always fascinated me, and your writing portrays that connection so well! Gorgeous! And hello there, fellow ballerina ;) <3

    ooh i love this! it is beautiful! i thought i was following you--well, i am now. I really like your work. especially the lines "The flowers blossom out my mouth / The flowers grow in my chest / In my lungs their roots crawl and scratch / Agony" they are so descriptive and beautiful. I really like this <333
