i open myself up,
bleeding flowers
til the water
runs red
bathtub ring stain
pink on porcelain.

i used to be nature
i used to be beautiful.
chemicals & acid
ate through my flesh
& i became
something new
but something i could not want
something i could not love.

i am dried petals
forgotten to be pressed
between pages
of a loved book
or even one hated,
just left to desiccate.
i have plucked my own roots
from the soil
thinking i could become
something better.
i did not know
i would ruin what i was.
i did not know
i was beautiful- sad, yes,
but i was beautiful,
just as i was.
