You plant parts of you in someone’s garden
Not knowing they’re already occupied by roses with thorns that ruins your hands once you get pass them
You bleed, but you try not to scream or yell, or cry
Instead you hide them at your back, while you slowly wipe the blood from your trembling fingers
And you squeeze your fist to try and make it stop
Because who told you to plant there in the first place?
Have you been blind the moment you stepped into that front yard?
Or were you too distracted by the promising space you were allured to lie on?
But then again, no one asked you to.
So you can’t blame the man for the pain he had cause you
He showed you what he has, but he didn’t offer
He let you in, but he didn’t make you stay
He touched you delicately like his own, but he didn’t hold you to already call you his
You say you’ve been tricked, trapped, and messed the hell up
But you can never trust words alone, nor can you rely on actions alone
So no, my love, your mistake is your mistake alone
You believed, and you forced yourself in
But like what they say
Just because you could, doesn’t mean you should
