Farewell Flowers

Wed, 01/07/2015 - 17:59 -- Mooilky
Will I see you
Hold me once more
Like petals on the doorstep
Don't step inside
My rosebud nose
Was only made to smell the sweet scents of life
Not your rancid breath
Or decaying tongue 
Talking will come later
Not now
Let me pretend you love me
Imagine that you'll hold me
Once more
Like flowers on my instep 
Growing up my thigh
Maybe if i hold my breath 
Our dead oxygen will stop mingling
And I can pretend you are as lovely as the flowers
Crushed beneath our feet
