Where Roses Bleed

So still the night around her

As perfumed candles softly dance

To the breath of tears now falling

Upon the petals in her hands

Glistening drops of memories

Cascade slowly down her face

As she is taken back through time

To a once upon a place

Where once she was a dancer

Upon a stage dressed in his smile

And blood red roses were an offering

With hat in hand,he showed his style

A nearing stranger in the shadows

He faltered from the light

Tossing blood red roses

Then softly whispering goodnight

These moments were so long ago

Still they're etched within her mind

As trembling fingers caress each petal

Her heart,it falls behind

Seeing is believing

She knows now she must move on

Though beautiful memories remain

The blood red roses have all gone

Somewhere in the stillness

Beyond the beating of her heart

There cries a thousand roses

Blood red and torn apart
