A simple minded person can understand the most complicated things.

As a petal falls,
A petal rosy red,
It falls to the ground,
And starts to make a bed.

A rosy red red petal,
As smooth as velvet,
It feels so soft,
As I touch it.

As the days goes on,
The petal shrivels up,
So I pick the rose,
And put it in a cup.

As I watch the rose,
I think of everything,
Like what I would do,
If I could sing.

But as I look,
I see a different red,
THe rose looks like,
It has bled.

Most people don't know how they're gonna feel from one moment to the next, but a dope fiend has a pretty good idea. They just look at the labels on the little bottles.

I love the uplifting beginning of it. The ending twisting mood is good. Only thing that bothers me is the last line. I feel as though it's too short or something. I don't know, if it is good with you then that's wonderful.
