Only The Thorns Remain

Life is like a rose…

You gave me a rose
Deep crimson
Soft petals arranged so carefully
It’s beauty radiated
Lighting me

You gave me your hand
Smooth strength
Wild eyes could see through me
Your revealed desires
Captured me

You gave me your heart
Blood pumping
Great life maintaining strength
Your love poured out
Into me

You gave me your soul
Deep being
Fantastic dreams waiting to be reality
Your spirit alive
Consumed me


You left me alone
Cold darkness
Shadows dancing on the walls
Silence screaming loudly
Around me

The rose petals have wilted
Only the thorns remain
