The blooming of the reddest rose; it cannot compare, cannot impose, on this darkened den of thieves and ghosts. It will brighten when she comes back home. So I await, with baited breath, this love of mine, my final step; but on the reddest rose, I see the thorns, they remind me that she won't return. Oh, how the sorrow sows, when the winter wind blows; in this garden grows, the reddest rose. So they fall, all those petals proud. They fall with grace, upon the ground. When seasons pass, they will grow back, they will grow stronger; I am sure of that. But, on the reddest rose, I seek the thorns. Just the thorns.
Branches 04:07
You know, if I saw you crying...I would stay and cry with you. And if, I knew you were hiding. You would never have to hide all alone. There is something running through, the heart of me, and the heart of you. And when the world weighs on your shoulders, when you are sure you going to fall, just call out to your sister, your brother, your own; they will carry you through it all. You know, you're not what I asked for, you're not even what I hoped for; you're so much more. When we're old, and the world is a bit lighter, we'll sit by the fire and tell all the young ones how it used to be.
Jade 02:33
She lays down so gracefully. I could never imagine another. Home. I am, she is, we are home. It is where her heart is holding me, alone. Embrace me and fool me again. I am alone, in the welcoming arms of another one. I am, she is, we are home. It is where her heart is keeping me. She watches safely, securely beyond. I could never imagine another, not one.


Through the Forest, and past the Sunken Cathedral, behind the old stone wall, and just before The Widows Watch...is the Garden.
