I Am a Plant – NaPoWriMo 2018 – Day 3

I am a plant.

I tell my therapist
I am a plant
With complicated emotions
Shaped by cigarettes and ink.
I tell him
How smoke and words keep me alive.
And how people plant me
Under their control,
With their hands,
And put a rod beside me,
So I bloom exactly the way they want.
I tell him,
How when I offered my heart to that guy
All I got was cigarettes in return.
My therapist tells me not to make people my home,
Else I will be homeless always,
For people don’t stay,
Instead make yourself your home.
He gives me advices
“Relax your body and the rest will be lightened”
I laugh,
For if I relax even for a second,
I would go to pieces,
And the pieces would be blown away!
