flowers growing
    from seeds planted
in the dirt and grime

pushing through
  with black centers
and petals of blood red

pushing higher
  until they reach
the attic of my mind

harsh words water
  centers of black
some flowers grow in the attic

green leaves dried
  withered away
where do the pretty ones go?

always struggling
  with my fears
my attic filled with

tears of blood,
tears that wash away
self-esteem

over time,
through the years,
the flowers grow less and less
