A girl is compared to a rose. Beautiful but full of thorns.

Like A Rose
Like a rose She is beautiful And tempting to touch But only from a distance Is her beauty all that much
Like a rose She is delicate A creation from above But only from a distance Was she meant to be so loved
Like a rose Her scent is sweet She takes your breath away But only from the garden Where she must always stay
Like a rose She is beautiful And tempting to take But do not fall in love For your own heart's sake
Like a rose She is beautiful But do not be deceived The thorns she holds around her Will cause your heart to bleed
Like a rose No one can have her Without having to say goodbye But if she is not taken She will only live and die
Like a rose She can't be handled For her petals will surely fall But love her from a distance And she'll share her love with all

thanks! I wrote this becuase at the time I felt like anyone who tried to love me just got hurt and was forced to say goodbye to me. I never ment to hurt anyone and that was too painful a time for me. Glad it's over! thanks for your comment!
