A Blood-Drenched Rose

Stuck on the surface
I hear the bell toll
Ending the life
Of a million blood-drenched souls
Digging for meaning
I see our race fall
Landing upon
A million blood-drenched walls
Searching for light
I feel the darkness close in
Shielding and hiding
A million blood -drenched sins
I retrieve the key
Because the door will close
On my sorrows as delicate
As a blood-drenched rose.
