weeding you away [poetry]

so many bits of you

so many memories

tangled and driven deep within

every inch of me

I’d never noticed the weeds

until you left me

and they went to seed

and I held only emptiness

caressed by wind

and the ghosts of roses

and blossomless trees

I have to seize each one

and pull it free

until my garden is free of you

free of weeds
