Bittersweet Roses

I don’t know if you knew

But I owe it all to you

My liberation

The fight for a cause

 

There you were, smiling at me

The wind in your tresses

So peacefully

I cannot make it fade

Your scream piercing

Like winter’s blade

Your bittersweet roses

Stained my memory

 

What a fool was I

Taking for granted

The ambiguous lie

That I stood alone

 

There you were, smiling at me

The wind in your tresses

So peacefully

I cannot make it fade

Your scream piercing

Like winter’s blade

Your bittersweet roses

Stained my memory

 

How can I erase this?

The nightmares follow everywhere

Your eyes follow everywhere

Your blood

Like bittersweet roses

Petals on the ground

Your memory

Like bittersweet roses
