Bed Of Roses

The Gecko on your wall

Soon to be gone

Only for the cockroaches to come in again

Here I lay waiting for you in a bed full of roses

You betrayed me and returned to me with a single pink rose

I cried in your arms

You comforted me

My love for you knows no bounds

I planted my single pink rose

It has born forth-new fruits

And now I lay in a bed full of roses

Still waiting for you while you run around with cockroaches

They shit all over you

Sting you with their stench

I have cried

I am still crying

My tears are nourishing my garden of roses

I lie amongst the thorns

I bleed as they rip my flesh

Still waiting for you

My blood nourishes the soil

Still waiting for you

Many have come with their valor

To rescue me from myself, still waiting for you

I gave you my heart

You turned it into a pincushion

Pierced it with many needles

I am weak and feeble

Bleeding till death

Lying in my bed of roses, still waiting for you

I have died and given you my soul

Buried in my bed of roses

Still waiting for you

Dancing around with cockroaches

They will kill you and return your soul to me

Bury you in my bed of roses

I will be waiting for you in the afterlife

Still waiting for you

In my bed of roses
