Roses for the Dead

Under my skin

Sleeps knowledge



In the shape

Of shadows


They press

And twist

And mould me


Hold me


And Godless

Controlled by

Bygone ghosts

And shame untold;


I’m sorry I couldn’t handle who I was

I’m sorry I became so self-righteous

I’m sorry I couldn’t look in the mirror

I’m sorry I felt good about making you feel like nothing

So that you wanted to hurt me too

Every time I tried to love you

It all fell through

I never meant to leave you cold



Regretful realisations do not change the past,

Let us rest now.
