there are too many

I don’t know why‘s and
I’m sorry I tried’s
I might be starving but I’m done eating your lies
and while I was carving your name in my eyes
you figured
grass was greener on the other side
so don’t fool yourself
with trying to deny
the common cents owed in your attention’s overdue rents
’cause there’s gaps in this fence and
i can still see you hide
your sly preference for her flowers
over ‘mine’

and my garden might need watering but
I’m not going to cry

all you’ve ever given me are
nursery rhymes
