This poem I created to have two poems in one. The first poem, Black Rose Death, is created with the words in and out of the parenthesis while Breath is created with the words inside the parenthesis.

(I caress) the flowers, roses, and dream
of happiness.
(I know nothing of this) word. Nothing more,
nothing less.
(I pray) that I will know the meaning before
the death of me.
(I care that I want to know) what it means so I
can be free.
(Not just how I feel) in my heart, but also
in my soul.
(Praying) I will find someone to help me
reach my goal.
(So I stare blankly) at that dreamless
black rose,
(And feel death) and sickness creep upon
me as it grows.
(So here I lie) in this nightmare of everything
but smiles
(As my sorrow is) drowned by sadness in
distant miles.
(Becoming one) is nothing, not me, but
a stranger,
(As I fall) into an empty death of nothing
but anger.
