The Rose of Love
by Shannon  Chow

The rose blooms
With gentle petals,
The colors of love.
The sweetness of its scent,
The roughness of its thorns.
As your hands caress the petals,
The thorns stab within.
As the petals
Grow closer to the ground,
The pain releases itself.
The redness of its petals
Become the blackness
Of your heart.
The rose wilts,
And love fades away.
