7 (who?)
I smile holding your head in my hands,
My mystical marionette,
Wood of your chest heaving with pain,
My dear delicate Rosette.

It's ok to go,
Though I know I'll be left alone.
I should never have brought life
To a thing void of flesh and bones.

Thank you for bringing me joy
When I thought I could feel nothing,
Who knew there could be so much soul
Dancing beneath a string.

But you don't need to be here anymore,
Holding on while I hold your burning core,
Petting at the synthetic strands of your puppet hair
And gazing into your button eyes of despair.

I should have told you oil spills,
I should have told you fire burns;
A lesson no one should ever
Have to learn.

The furnace is hot my child,
The furnace is hot...
It'll hurt quite a lot my child,
It'll hurt quite a lot...

Now let go and rest your tired head.
Close your eyes to the glowing red.
Just listen to me sing
A hymn for the body dying.
Poor Rosette. She wasn't alive for very long, but the time I spent with her seemed so real, as vivid as the tendrils of a grape in spring. Death takes us all, but if I hadn't have given her life then she would have never had to experience it. Since I can never undo what I've done, the least I can do is to write a poem in her honor.

Goodbye Rosette.... rest in peace! Although there may be regret in giving her life, do you think she would've regretted it? I don't think so...
