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.

I almost wanted to cry when I read this. You did an exceptional job writing this. Just remember that helping has one "P", not two. Good job
