The garden

"The Garden"

The spring will soon dry out and flee
and with the winter, so will we
we're skin and bones and weathered souls
corpses stowed in weathered homes
we're skin and bones
we both know how it ends.

I'll take my time time on you,
speaking softly and watering softly
and I'll remember when you said
your colors would look best
and oh, i'll bloom with you.

like bones of frosted, fragile trees
stood whitewashed and jealous
the dog day's green
we're skin and bones of that summer's ghost
we lit the flames we love the most
skin and bones
we both know how it ends

I'll take my time time on you
speaking softly and watering softly
and I'll remember when you said
your colors would look best
and oh, i'll bloom with you.

Impatient and panicked the lovebirds plea
we're lonesome and famished for proper feed
we're skin and bones like the caged birds boast
verses snagged in the song bird's throat
we're skin and bones
don't you know how it ends?

I'll take my time time on you
speaking softly and watering softly
and I'll remember when you said
your colors would look best
and oh, i'll bloom with you.
