Alas, I'm running out of things to say. Your poetry strikes a cord in me.

I really liked this one...ah, I love all of 'em. Who am I kidding...
Anyway, you talked about 'have you ever loved something that was almost perfect?'
This may not be the message you're trying to get past, but I know what you mean, by thinking that something is just so great and wonderful, and you tell yourself you love it with all your heart, but then you see the thorns, and you realize that it's not perfect, and you wonder why you thought it was so great...
I used to have a problem with thinking a lot of things were perfect, but now I know that everything has a thorn, and you expressed it very well.

Perhaps the irony is that the rose is perfect in imagination, but if you cling to fantasy so steadfast you ignore what is real you may not notice the thorns of reality.

Oh boy do I know the irony all too well. I like this part a lot:
An unfathomable deep beauty, that no one knows./A striking vision… A classic, red rose.

*claps hands* Wow, that was AWESOME. My heart was just blown away when I read this. The words just seemed so rich, gorgeous, but full of pain. You're a very talented poet. Bravo on creating such a marvellous piece of art!
