A Flower With Thorns - Poem by Ana Rose

To look at that expression on your face
Your lips spread apart so tightly they disappeared in front of your teeth
Your eyes squint
Your mouth opens
Your tongue curls out
And I understood precisely what you were feeling, every square inch of it
I knew your heart was racing faster than you were used to
You raised the bottle to your lips and smiled rather then scrunched your face
They were surprised at the ease in which the liquor rained down your tongue
But I knew it wasn't comparable to the pain you felt when you refrained from letting yourself feel that burn
Liquor hurt for a second.
The pain you felt prior lasted centuries.
So
you smiled
And only I knew why
Only I smiled back
Only my face did not scrunch when I too followed your actions
Only I knew what you were feeling exactly
Because my heart was at race with yours
Because I was the vase and you were the rose
Your petals were red as the color on my lips and only I could tell you why
Because the water was so clean and pure and only you and I could feel it
When I saw you smile like that, your petals flourish
I just grinned, and held your leaves higher
No weed could understand this feeling
Without me there is no you
Without you I have no purpose, my beauty gone, my rose dead
And I understood precisely what you were feeling, every square inch of it
Because only I felt that too

But I guess I got caught in the beauty and forgot that every rose dies, everyone.
Our water was pure but our water was rough, it hurt constantly
And over and over it crashed into the sides of my vase
Every time it crashed a piece of me cracked and shattered
But I let your rough waves continue to ruin me all while desperately grasping at your beauty
But the cracks spread too far
Your thorns hurt too bad and the vase shattered and broke
Now here is my rose
Lonely on this table surrounded by chards of glass like blood and suffocating without water
Now my rose is dead


Next time I found a Lilly, sweeter and kinder
But the water between us was always a bit yellower than before
I can sit back and pretend I've never seen clear water
But every time I sit by myself I just can't ignore the bitter taste of this yellow water that nurtures this Lilly
I can't help but miss my rose and the pureness that came with her
But this Lilly is calm and the water never hurts
She heals my wounds and fixes the cracks in my glass
If only there were no such cracks to fix
If only the first cut my beloved rose severed me with had allowed me to let her go rather then watch her leave as I broke
Will I once again understand precisely what these weeds feel? Every square inch?
Probably not-This water just isn't clear
I just can't see through.

    Distress and betrayal experienced in bliss of love well depicted in the poem. Love is a spiritual experience that affects all and sundry profoundly. It's whimsical and temperamental, coming unannounced and may leave without warning even after careful nurturing by one of the couples. I like the articulation of the piece as it captured your innermost feelings. A lovely poem indeed. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
