Once A Red Rose

once a red rose
bleeding of pain
the black knife that caused its pain
the bloody petals of life
fell to the ground
the blood of a fallen friend
the pain he took
once a red rose
always in pain
but know the rose
is no longer red
the fallen friend is now a
black rose
living in the shadows
the only pain he feels is
the pain of being a fallen friend

    what sad poem but yet the way you put you or someone else in the spot as a flower what i mean is you refer a person to a red rose and the petals that fell to the ground bleed of pain
    and a black knife that cut the once red rose is now a black rose he now hides in the shadows and the only pain he feel is the ffallen friend (Report) Reply
