The Rose

velvety red petals
full and sweet
soft and light
arranged neat

beautiful symbol
of love, romantically
better symbol than thought
when thought logically

beautiful and sweet
it may be
but thorns and petals
both to see

thorns can cut deep
and hurt you
as you bleed
what to do?

beauty decietful
handled improperly
blood and hurt
rising to see

a symbol of love
handled improperly

    a very nice write...somewhere to the end the thread is lost in the metaphorical sense...

    overall very readable....

    be happy
