Man's Curse - Poem by Warren Chan

Emotions circle,
The Rose withers
every petal vein where red beauty flourished
Blackens.
life is sucked into the abyss
Disappears.
where the rose’s spirit is replaced
Love and Hate
the dance continues through every petal
the mix of thoughts transforms
rage
fear
hate
love
Tea rs

petals fall
