Sally’s Orchid

R.J. Johnson/B. LeeThere is an orchid someone gave meFlat and pressed under the glassIt once was pink and vividBut today it’s day has passedIts brown leaf spread weak and thinThat orchid feels just like my bones and skinIts heartbeat centre of its soulIs now just furry shelter to protect it from the coldLaid out flat for visual effectToday I feel a lot like thatI put it in its frame eternal joyAnd now its just another burned out toyYou should have seen the wayIt slowly just decayedI feel a lot like that orchid today
