poetry by j matthew waters

planting purple petunias by your side

to be humbled is an understatement
there is just too little time to begin with
and I seem to have lost my way

I’ve been digging for treasure far too long
and I’ve grown tired of manipulation
oh how I want to be able to trust again

I spent most of the afternoon solitarily
tidying up your place & the neighborhood
planting purple petunias by your side

  1. Beautiful! It is exhausting to live without trust.
