Yellow Rose

Yellow rose I swallowed
Pit of my stomach churning
Choked on another I told you so
Rage within me burning

Petals heavy as led
Outside in I'm stained
Regurgitating faith
Yellow coursing through my veins

There's no cure for deception
What's done is done, another re-run
There's no cure for deception
I am gone, you have won

Familiar taste encompassing
All I once knew
He loves me he loves me not
Robbed of all I held true

Inner strength escapes me
Deflated disaster I am
Remnants of who I once was
Slowly seep through my skin

There's no cure for deception
What's done is done, you better run
There's no cure for deception
So un-fun, you are now no one

Yes yellow rose I swallowed but you can't blame me
For on the art of being deceived I've had years of training

Blind gluttony immobilized
Punishment I don't deserve
Yellow breath rank bellows
Tiny woman-vision blurred

Yellow rose I swallowed
Pit of my stomach churning
Choked on another I told you so
Rage within me burning
