Roses

He gave to me some roses,

wrapped in paper.

Gorgeous!

Deep red blooms

that added color to my room.

The thorn dug in,

tore through my skin

and the blood welled up

so thick and fast.

It only takes a second

for me to see

the similarity in the colors.

A good comparison of the petals of the rose and the blood we bleed.
