When A Rose Cries

A Poem by shallimarRose

I wrote this about 2 years ago..... This poem was in part inspired by the accompanied song... Thank you for reading..

wanting only to give her love
she tried so hard in vain
but he could not return that love
so velvet petals cried in pain

the thorns she bore as a protection
it seems did her little good
he laughed at her in mocked rejection
and gloated with the wild-wood

 

shattered moments of love untrue
in realization petals fell
he'd turned a yellow rose to blue
in darkness left her there to dwell

and so she turned and walked away
he'd left her little choice
he'd turned her life to disarray
and stole her golden voice

 

and even as the rose does cry
with withered petals falling lite
on velvet wings one lonely dove
had joined her in the final flight

we think we become immune to heartache after so many, but each rejection pricks like the thorns on a rose stem, just as much as before...

achingly beautiful write.
