Crimson Rose

Crimson Rose

A Poem by Raven

red rose

Holds beauty and grace within each petal
A symbol for lovers of feelings true
So wild and untamed
Yet gentle as a kiss
With wicked thorns run deep
Upon it's wielder who holds with carelessness
Colors are many but crimson favored
Admired with aw
Soft as velvet
With sent so sweet
Majestic Pose
Royalty of all blooms
Red so deep as blood
The ancient name....
Crimson Rose

Very nice, it is a flower that represents love but love sometimes cuts deep...

thank you for your kind words, do you feel i could change anything, and thank your for the idea for cutting on the punctuations, it sounds much better

This was amazing. I loved reading this. I like how you didn't use much punctuation in this; it was like I could feel each word melting my soul. When I finished reading this, I finally remembered to breathe; I don't remember it too clearly, but I'm pretty sure I was holding my breath the whole time I read this. You've definitely earned my respect with this poem (by respect, I mean appreciation for your skills). Great job. Now, if you'd excuse me, I'm about to read this a fourth time :)
