Once colorful dreams now swing like dead paratroops from the naked trees.
Your sky lips and snow skin are sugar for the carrion perched high atop the naked trees.
A flower on the bed of brittle leaves.
A mass grave of tiny angels fallen from the heavens from the naked trees.
Rot beautiful creature all lifeless and serene.
A patch of scorched earth.
Naked beneath the naked trees.

    My InterpretationMy quite literal interpretation is that it's about a serial killer who murders women and leaves their bodies in a forest.

    "Once colorful dreams now swing like dead paratroops from the naked trees."
    She had hope in her future, but it died with her.

    "Your sky lips and snow skin are sugar for the carrion perched high atop the naked trees."
    Her lips are blue and skin is a pale white, so she's been out in the elements for a bit. At this point she's only useful to the carrion birds perched above her resting place.

    "A flower on the bed of brittle leaves."
    He laid her down on a field of leaves.

    "A mass grave of tiny angels fallen from the heavens from the naked trees."
    She's not his only victim. He may be motivated by religion, killing women he deems to be unworthy in the eyes of his god.

    "Rot beautiful creature all lifeless and serene.
    A patch of scorched earth.
    Naked beneath the naked trees."
    She'll be left to decay among an array of deciduous trees that are are bare as her corpse.
