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.
