Beauty Among Her Roses - Poem by Guarded Heart

She's done
She never let it show
But now she's letting go
No one to trust
She hates to face the truth
But she can't hide anymore
He drags her down
It's never enough
She live as a shadow
And he takes advantage of her

And it will all fall apart
Soon she'll stop breathing

He's always been there for her
He wants to save her
She promised him she'd leave if it got bad enough
And he loves her so much
He only wants her to do what she wants
She just smiles
She'll keep her promise
But not as he expected

She slits her wrists and lays down
Among the blood red roses
Garden path
Covered in snow

He came to find her
Wanted to take her to the doctor
Thinks maybe that will help her

Their lies Beauty
Among the roses
Her burgundy tressess around her face
Green eyes closed in peace
Olive skin fading to ivory
Lips still warm, but warmth slowly fading
She's no longer breathing
