pixelated roses
courtesy in vain
gave them to my mother
now she feels the same
and I owe her
what she gave to me
and I forgive her
for what she could not be

bring to me
my lover
all your promises
oceans of forever
endless crevasses
and I owe it
what you gave to me
and I felt it
when you turned away

and I owe

pixelated roses
courtesy in vain
left you in the ashes
carved up my whole name
fix you
I forgive you
but I’m never quite the same

and I owe

you better run
you better hide
because it’s here inside

you better run
from me

never quite what it seems
