here among the roses

i remember watching you
from a child’s point of view
never knowing what it’s like
to watch the sky fall
i carry your essence in my pocket
and a picture in my locket
ready to lose it all
here among the roses we never
question
bad habits in the underworld
murder me with your poison words
freedom fatal freedom
be the death of me
here among the roses we do not
question
i never expected to fall on my face
time puts us both in our place
wondering how to leave
there are worse things you could do
but if i could make the birds sing
the song would be for you
please believe
here among the roses we cannot
question
