Dusty roses

faded rose

Take your broken heart and sew it up now,

This is brand a new sound track –

Filling the midnight;

All you had to do was say so,

Before the roses evaporated into dust,

Leaving only smoky woods and flaming leaves;

Telephone poles race by –

As you take the puzzle pieces,

Fit them all together

Find the way to fantasy,

Oh, let’s get lost in it

Remember now,

What we were fighting for

All those years ago,

But now we just hide it all

Behind a false little smile, 

Ignoring the dusty roses.

It’s easier, this way,

But tell me, is it better?

Is being numb really better than the pain?
