trying to unravel it and ultimately align ourselves with who we really are." ~Billy Corgan


Purple against black
hiding in the shadows
of the tall trees that create
a perfect circle around the
sparkling water.

Forever blooming,
never fading, never dying,
hiding from the golden sun,
protecting the secret of love.

Blackened thorns,
hiden from sight,
waiting to catch the next person
who is charmed by the dark petals.

Forever blooming,
never fading, never dying,
hiding from the golden sun,
protecting the secret of love.

My eyes
caught on the flowers
as I get closer to them.
My fingertips lightly brushing velvet.

Forever blooming,
never fading, never dying,
hiding from the golden sun,
protecting the secret of love.

A thorn
breaking through my skin
as I back away,
wishing it wasn't too late to run,
to get away from the pain.

Forever blooming,
never fading, never dying,
hiding from the golden sun,
protecting the secret of love.

Silent voices
laughing hysterically
as I trip and fall into the water,
as I sink deeper and deeper.

Forever blooming,
never fading, never dying,
hiding from the golden sun,
protecting the secret of love.

My lungs,
bursting painfully,
sending silver bubbles to the surface
as water fills the empty space.

Forever blooming,
never fading, never dying,
hiding from the golden sun,
protecting the secret of love.
