Fake Roses Velvety Tears

The fuzz on the petal
Of the fake rose
Tears stream down your face
Numb like velvet

Deep down
You've been exposed
To your greatest fears
And your darkest nightmares

Your lightest days
Your brightest ways
The wandering strays

The discriminated gays

The death has given you
A pathway of doors to wander
Deep inside you body

Don't hide

The fuzz on the petal
Of the fake rose
Tears stream down your face
Numb like velvet

Love
Lust
Tears
Dust

I sit here
And stare
At the gravestone
In despair

The fuzz on the petal
Of the fake rose
Tears stream down your face
Numb like velvet
