Ashe

A single white petal
A purple bud
Floating in a sea of red

Touch me
Hold me close
Let the night unfold around us
Let the rain wash over me
Take me away from this

Can't see your makeup
                 For the circles beneath your eyes
Will I ever be warm again in your arms?

Let the world collapse around me
In a haze of smoke
Let them burn out
As I fade away.
