Dead Roses

Dead Roses

Dead Roses never did anyone any harm

Except their thorns seem to shine in the light

Kind of like little pins of pain

Dead Roses sometimes make me feel

Like love existed once and somehow became lost

On its journey between two hearts

that thought they were one

Dead Roses are no longer pretty

Unless you think of death as attractive

I guess some people do because

They still hold onto the past

Trying to hold onto a heart

That didn’t have a problem

With just letting go…

But I don’t really know

I mean I’ve never owned

Dead Roses before

But I bet if they could talk

There’d be many tales to tell

Of love lost and lost once more

On its journey between two hearts

That thought they were one.
