*something I'Ve Never Tried Before* - Poem by Alejandro Torres

The roses told
Only on you
Only on you
I was a stray without a fold
Without a pack
Dying slowly
Dying lonely
Cause you were the arrow
In my flank

So I limped through life
In a circle
In a circle
Like a cycle
Til I collapsed
In between a strange place
A rock and your lap

You stroked my head
How pathetic
How pathetic
But I loved you
And when the realization dawned on me
My heart developed a tiny crack
In that moment
It only just felt broken

I loved you even then
As I lay dying
As I lay dead
