Burning Midnight Rose

Burning, burning rose alight,

Why do you being pain and sorrow tonight?

While the clock strikes midnight

As each petal crunches in my hand;

Little drops of blood splashes,

On the pure white surface of the clock

Each petal fading like the dreams of starlight fantasy

Time sips through the cracks of the clock

Permitting the wave of time to stop

If only he would look into to my eyes one more time;

So I can save the last bit of time into my heart

As my dark secrets swarms through my mind,

Knowing truly he will fade has well someday

My heart flutters as his smile starts to fade too

Trying to grasp the dark secret

As he finally fades from my dream,

The world collapses on top of me,

Bring sorrow for an eternity.
