The roses are dead;

The butterflies i squished;

The birds were shot;

The ants were drowned;

All living things came to an end on that night;

The night that YOU took my soul;

The night you took my soul and left me there;

When you left me there;

You left me, cold hearted in the world.

i like this one.
i love that last line...
"you left me, cold hearted in the world"

just a suggestion, but i think it would sound better if "in the world" was "to the world".

and your messing up your tenses a little bit.
the roses are dead - is present.
and then the rest of the poem is past tense.
i'd suggest changing it to,
"the roses have died"

and maybe change i squished to "are squished"

good subject though.

Definately...I will use these tips coming up...I just need something dramatic to take place in my life for something else to write! Thanks!
