Black Roses by writerforever

Black as the ashes

Voices so frightening

Calling out

So powerful


Sanity is hard to cling too

When you finally see who you really are

Insanity offers escape

Escape from the life

That you're forced to live

Each moment, each second

Is agonizing

Confidence and smiles

Are your shields

Fighting to survive

Desperately wanting to reach out

And clutch the black roses

To leave it all behind….
