Daft Rose

You're a daft rose,
ridiculously na´ve
but so charmingly lost.

Out of place,
the concept fades away
like my last breath
on the wall of glass
between us.

You're a daft rose
and I'm the cunning knife;
if I cut you free from ignorance
I will watch you wither sooner.

You're a child
with laughter in your eyes
and ice-cream on your chin;

I'm so afraid I'll cease to love you
if I wipe away your flaws.
