There is an orchid someone gave me
Flat and pressed under the glass
It once was pink and vivid
But today its day has passed

Its brown leaf spread weak and thin
That orchid feels just like my bones and skin
Its heartbeat centre of its soul
Is now just furry shelter to protect it from the cold

Laid out flat for visual effect
Today I feel a lot like that
I put it in its frame eternal joy
And now its just another burned out toy

You should have seen the way
It slowly just decayed
I feel a lot like that orchid today
