FlourishMamas, Don't bury your babies out in the backyardFlourish by NahaniDawg
When they grow old enough to disappoint.
When the sapling branches in the wrong direction,
Sever the limb, or support it with string to grow in a new direction.

These past seven days make my top ten worst days.
While you're breathing just fine I'm drowning.
My best friends are talking about their boyfriends can do no wrong,
Like they're the twin sons of God
They can do no wrong and here I am still calling you my boyfriend,
Mistakenly of course, I'm more than done with you.
Perhaps on the outside I look happy too,
While the world is crumbling and crashing around me.
My heart is the epicenter of this quaking in my life.
The riptide is dragging me out to sea,
But all I wish for in this ocean of agony
