THE DAY THE FLOWER DIED

Standard

dead flowerGlimpsing a passageway over my shoulder
The snake shed his skin
The habit’s kicked – gone away
And life anew begins
Angel fish I’ll grant your wish
To ignore and go
But did you make – perhaps create
A valve
Too off the feeling flow
God forbid I bet you did
I heard you lie
Put on a show

I still have pride
Ever since the flower died
Or is it love alive inside
Kiss Heavens archway
Stand on toes – if you must
Swallow life’s dust
Begin again begin again

Latch it up today
So the soul is covered in rust
Merely a slight crust
Begin again begin again
