petal speaking

If there are flowers
I know you lied

If there are roses
the lies were said with
all the best intentions.

A single rose
was a girl selling
guilty consciences
at the pub.

Daisies mean small
white lies that wouldn’t
harm anyone.

Baby’s breath are lies
that cut us open.

If there are sunflowers
it means you remembered
that I like sunflowers
