It's Just a Rose

Poetry By: delayedreaction

In dedication to the rose that dropped out of my life

It's just a rose

That's what they said

When we were little

Roses were pretty

You didn't know they had thorns

If you mentioned it they would say you were witty

And they would sit there and scorn

How is that helpping with life?

The thorns are strife

The thorns are a knife

But they don't tell us about the thorns

They only tell us about the rose

They don't want you to know you'll have foes...




Nights filled with cognizance

With the absence

Of who you want to hear from

You don't have guidance

You're supposed to have patience

And wait for sleep to come.


This poem is dedicated to the rose in my life. You're a beautiful person.. but you can hurt me and I've hurt you back. Please forgive me.
