White Roses and Black Ribbons

I won't give you flowery language
that expresses everyone feeling
Exactly the way you are now -

about the death of yet another
loved one, about the comfort
of places you swore you would
never again call home or heart.

I understand that this sorrow
is something you need to
get off your chest and out
of your poisoned veins as well.

I won't give you flowery language
about this one, but I do hope
that you feel better soon -

knowing that we are all
so sorry for your loss.
