Floral Flaws

Mon, 09/14/2015 - 22:17 -- ab2000

Roses are red,

Violets are blue,

You once loved me,

And I once loved you.

 But time after time, 

We screamed and we cried,

Now the roses have wilted, 

and the Violets have died.


Marigolds are orange,

Daisies are white,

I cried in my room,

With razors each night.

But long over time, 

All i asked was why?

Now the daisies have wilted,

And the sunflowers have died.


Tulips are pink,

Sunflowers are gold,

I stopped fighting,

It was getting old.

But after a short time, 

All I had was soft cries.

So now the Sunflowers have wilted,

And the tulips have died.


The roses were red, 

As red as my blood....

The violets were blue,

As blue as my veins....

But deep in my soul,

I was broken and cold,

So now I lie in the ground where the flowers grow old....
