Black Rose

This black rose I see is beautiful to me
Its beauty is nothing I’ve seen
Has no thorns I see its perfect in all ways
I know I cant draw blood from it
I know I have love from it
It wont hurt me
Or burn me
Its too sweet and beautiful
Its my black rose
You may think its not beauty I see
But I don’t care because
Beauty to me
is what I see inside thee
even though it lost its color and beauty
it is still beautiful to me
because even in death its still beautiful life
its my beautiful black rose it still lives its beautiful life

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem talks about beauty and love on a whole different level. I once meant a young boy was deaf but he didnt need to hear what others say about me, because he Saw me for me with his own eyes. And saw beauty inside and out. I thanked him ever since the day he helped me write this poem. And im proud to have our creation together.

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
