A lily for a life

<p style="text-align: center;">once upon a night, when you were sleeping in my arms <br />i sniffed the intoxicating smell of your hair and sighed in love<br />a lily tied to your silky golden locks, adding to its charm <br />I plucked it softly and placed it in my wallet for fun. <br />And today when I pay my bills of sins, disgust and hate<br />your dried lily, with its fresh smell hits me on my face<br />and I remember how it was to roam in your city, be your taste <br />cause today heartbreaks apart i still secure a part of your maze. <br />I am a lost and broken puzzle piece, do I fit anymore or not is secondary <br />I wander hearts and bodies without knowing what I desire<br />am I looking for a home, a place to mark my territory<br />so I sob in misery, confusion, the lily wet with my pleas.<br />they said "blood is thicker than water", leave them in a desert <br />I am a traveller, without destination, without journey, irony ruling my hours <br />now im in the arms of death, without water but the lily buried along in the dust<br />cause the lily was a part of you, somewhere i belonged in my life, and death doesn't hurt. </p>
