i never
learned the
language
of flowers,
never knew
why the
nettle
spat its
words at me
with venom,
why those
green
forked
tongues
left a
sting

(i bet the sheep don't lose a wink over the starving wolves, either)

Maybe you ignored the the flowers while they tried to teach you their language; let the venom stay which caused the sting.

As mostly I love the words in the brackets and how they spice everything up.
Great imagery, here. The nettle's surely has a sharp tounge.
