Downfall of Eden

You were never really afraid to lose me.
The attention,
yes,
but me?
No.
There was never enough I could do
or say
to get you to stay
as you flitted
from one source of attention
to the next
like a sort of
sick butterfly.
My thorns only grew bigger
the moment I realized
that I was not the only flower
in your garden.
