you walked inside my heart

and gave me roses to smell

for months I cherished the petals

while the roses fell

you brought my heart more flowers

and sadly they all died

i watered them every morning

with tears of weeping, I tried.

I couldn’t save the romance, dead

nor shut my eyes for days

my spirit fell apart in bed

but your roses stayed.

You tried to feed me flowers

while demons stole my brain

when all my fingers and blood were yours

nothing of me remained.

You lived inside of my heart all winter.

Why the Hell did I let you stay?

A million rose petals

and flowers rotting

in sweet perfume decay.

In March you’re sticking thorns to ribs

but to kill you would kill me too

so I spend my life watering dead petals

still hoping for a me and you.
