When that jungle flower blooms
Leave it in the ground
Don't try to cut it out

from Frank Ocean – Summer Remains Lyrics on Rap Genius


The flower is a metaphor for their relationship.

When something amazing happens, cherish it. Leave it as it was. Trying to keep it will only destroy it. Eventually it will come to an end and trying to maintain it would only ruin it for those involved.

In Frank’s Open Letter he mentions that his first love didn’t admit his feelings for Frank until three years after Frank did.
