I stretch my fingertips to touch the petal, and feel nothing but ice.
I bend to smell the rose, but it has no scent.
I am afraid this forbidden flower will forever be beyond my reach.
I open my eyes to be blinded by reality, but can see only shadow.
I strain my ears to hear the music of life, but am met with dark silence.
I'm trapped forever in this place of my mind, this illusion of comfort.
Never shall I taste the flower of true love
