11. Luukku


And then
Somebody told me
I can't bleed the roses red
Guess I'll lull myself to sleep
     with wine again
For I had painted the flowers 
Not with peace
       But with sweat and tears
And the blood of my enemies

And then 
     he looked at me
said with words so bittersweet 
We've been here once 
            or twice before
And I turn into mist
     Into the morning dew
Into something he couldn't move

For he took what was left of me
      Not with force
But with lullabies
      So bitter and sweet

He was a summer song
   dragging me
             into the deep.

But now it's winter
     And our hearts are frozen
                   Mid beat.
