The Flowers You Never Bothered to Find

I think I’m like the flowers
You never did bother to find.
I’d always thought that the flurry of shedding petals
Was the most beautiful thing
To be seen.

But when I asked you if you’d seen the trees
Crying their hearts out,
Bleeding pink petals,
You asked me,
“What trees?”
And with that sentence I knew
That would be your answer to the question
Too.

I guess I’m your magnolia,
Shedding petals in the form of the love
That you don’t see.
And it’s a miracle that you
Even know my name.
Because no matter how lush I show
My affections towards you,
I know you’ll answer-
“What love?”
