The Stick to Your Hand Sorrow by Ryan Vallee


You were the one to

Show my roots where to grab

Dirty hands never bothered you

Until later on

When you decided to

Grow without me

You never cut me down

But left me with sorrow running

Down my sides

Fleeing from a heart that wonders

If there’s a warmth that can

Make syrup of my sap

Making off

As if it knew the answer
