I planted a seed onto my arm
The stems attaching to my veins
The rose is growing
Flowing in its own mighty
But I feel pain
Pain of the thorns growing from my veins
I shall endure
Endure it all
Its cutting my skin
I am bleeding through
As it blossoms in perfection
I shall cut it
And give it...
...to her with love

It was all worth it

Worth it?

She decided to throw my rose into the trash

When she found the fake guy
Bleeding out diamonds
A rose wasn't enough for her

As I started to move on
Another girl picked that broken rose
And duct taped it
Placed it in her heart
While we both disappear...
