Black Rose - Poem by Daniel Hooks

You look like a black rose
in full bloom.
Your pose and the clothes you wear
Make me stare.
I am entranced hypnotised by your glance
Your raven black hair flowing down your back
Your skin porcelain pale gleaming white
Under in the moons pale light
Your lips a black shade of night
Waiting to be kissed
(please don’t resist)
I could list all the ways I love thee
and still not get close
Black rose I love you the most.

    everyone needs to express
    his deep
    inner heart
    and this you have
    done so well
    the words honest true
    filled with feeling
    a fine poem
