Rose

A rose,

Such a pretty thing to behold,

Deep scarlet, soft,

With a spellbinding scent.

A rose,

Such a loving thing to behold,

Sweet, thoughtful,

Giving them to those we love.

A rose,

Such a painful thing to behold,

Sharp, burning,

Hurt with every wrong move.

A rose,

Such a deadly thing to behold,

Anguish, sorrow,

Memories connected to this single rose.
