Cactus

Your deception pricked me inside.
Look, what it has done
It sowed the seeds of a cactus
Green, wild, full of thorns
It spreads its prickly leaves
And you know what it eats!
It feasts on my happiness
It relishes all my joys
When it is hungry
It pricks my stomach
Engaged in the war with heart
It makes my heart snivel
It keeps every hope away
It is eating me up like Cancer.
Still I can’t pluck it out
Because - because it reminds me of you.
