The Flowers You  Picked

You're wind blown flirty
And, with you I find
I fall apart inside this heart of mine
Nutty brittle and shy
Go slowly    
curry me a seasoning of rhythm from rhyme
Gather my fruits in the light of sunshine
bouquet's are budding
in this garden of mine

You picked my petals
I Should have put up a fight
Worked me over your coals til the mornin light

only then did you hastily depart
The flowers you picked
from my heart

A flotilla of passion
Made heaven cry
the love you rationed
has withered and died.  
Did me dirty
you're one precious tart
with the flowers you picked
from my heart
