Flowers in the dark

poison everywhere

surrounded by dirt

comfortable with who they are

who they are not causes hurt

 

an unquenchable thirst

to forget about

what is not yet known

hiding treasures deep inside

that are hardly ever shown

 

but still

in the dark

flowers can flourish

and flourish they do

to the moon’s surprise
