I suffer because I chose to love

Little roses that
Fight through a cold night
To bloom in the morning,
Die at the
Altar of a smile.

Do I blame the boy
Who killed a rose
To gift his girl?

Do I blame the girl
Who blushed and smiled
And gleefully kissed him back
When he went down on his knees
With a rose in his hand?

Do I blame the fate?
Do I blame the weight
Of unspoken dreams the little rose
Bore on its back
waiting for the sun to rise?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The love of rose for sun is meaningless. The sun doesn't arise or set because of the rose. In spite of knowing that its love is meaningless, the rose, fights through a difficult night, only to find its predetermined death.
