I give thee an orchid
And a rose in blood
Thorns piercing my flesh
From pain grows love

I give you my heart
My body, my soul
I smile as you thrive
I wither, grow old

I met you in a valley
Soon ravaged by a flood
While drowning and dying
Came your hand from above

Fragile and broken
For you I stayed strong
I ascended the mountain
to pick this orchid, my love

I descended from the mountain
To see you standing here
In the arms of a stranger
Claiming what I hold dear

Legs start to buckle
As the will leaves my flesh
Facing shame and failure
I succumb and begin to rest

The once flooded valley
Where I now lie
A field full of orchids
And my bones, now dry

"In A Pallid Shadow" will be released July 3, 2020. ... more
