The Rose Bush Mirage

The cavalry charges into this green and red frey,
My, soul, my mind, they are slipping away,
Fading ever still, I have nothing to say,
Nobody understands me, anyway,
I must now piece together
these ironys of existence,
These sentinels standing ground,
at the dawn of experience,
These rose petals drifting on the soft blue air,
The sweet gentle tang of the fruit this bears,
Amid this verse, my mind has changed,
'Tis futility to understand a world so strange,
God forbid the fruit to go sour,
Before we regress to our eleventh hour,
I gallop through this desert on my steed of words,
Alone, so alone, alone is the word,
With these last lines, I renew my quest,
Picking these rose petals, nonetheless.
