Her tree stands alone shading the rose.
Will the oak ever bow or will it only fall?
Are his words the meaning of it all?
Or is he false?
Can he lie?
Did he rest in the center of Eden?
Is the fruit as ripe as the promise it holds?
Why do the golden words that I drape with purple, fringe then tarnish?
Am I as heavily burdened as the child asleep on the street with no food or home?
Come to me as if you were pulled from my subconscience.
The very selfish prayer that strengthens the walls of my future.
Will you burn it all down for a taste of the apple?
everything is about temptation and seduction. In the beginning nothing was about her but by the end everything was about a comparison: is he different. Or will he be like all the others. am i as heavily burdened as i feel. surely things get worse. but this is significant to me. it ends with the ultimate question of are you willing to do this for ME?
