I would grow an orchid garden just for you

  • I would grow an orchid garden just for you

    I would grow an orchid garden just for you.
    I would open my skin to plant the seeds of your favorite flowers,
    water with my blood the small buds to root their bulbs with my arteries
    and keep the substrate wet with the stream of my eyes.
    I would retain the warmth of your orchids with the fire of my heart,
    while my vanilla essence would attract insects to pollinate every flower.
    I would feed only on their nectar and occasionally on yours.
    I would learn to run through the hills with my imagination just to be with you,
    and if I got lost I would find you by your smell of coffee and paper.
    I would build a secret refuge under the leaves for you to hide
    whenever you need to be absent from the world.
    I would draw clouds around me to refract the light.
    I would write new orchid names and paint them in your favorite colors.
    I would let you cut the flowers with the edge of your madness
    and make them grow again infinitely.
    I would give anything to see you smile every day. 
    I would grow an orchid garden just for you.
