rose can I come down for a drink?
it's happened again

i've got a story I'm sure written poorly
i'll begin at the end
rose you must know
i couldn't find the words
that it takes to say stay
now she's gone away

rose can i come down to your garden?
i can only grow flowers
bring me your shovel there's a heart to be buried and a body as well

your letters have died
with a strand of your hair
in a breast pocket safe they keep talking

now wake up alone
my eyes to the floor
and i see where my night will
and weeping once more

rose can i come down to your rose bed to lay in your thorns?
no i am empty so much to be buried
i will not be born

rose you must know
i felt more than i said
now i've got all the words
and no one

now the hole has been dug
and im down on my knees
rainmakers mud
spring we bloom as one

    General Comment***I've got a story I'm sure will end poorly,
    so I'll begin at the end.

    *** Rose, can I come down to your garden? I can only wilt flowers

    ***Your letters I've tied with a strand of your hair. In a breast-pocket safe, they keep talking

    ***Though I am empty, so much to bury. I will not be mourned.

    ***Rain, make us mud. In spring we bloom as one.
