She Let The Roses Die and Made Poppies

she didn’t need me, she kept me around for comfortability.

I couldn’t figure out why, or what was happening. The roses I left by your pillow meant nothing, as they laid there dying.

As you stared into my eyes and told me, I don’t love you anymore, became the best day of my life, knowing I was free from someone who didn’t deserve me.
