The rose

The rose

A Poem by Elwina

You might think you are the thorns

Of the rose I have admired

Claws from a chest that makes me bleed

But I am more than the scratches on my skin


My heart is strong 

And the moon will always uncover to leak its wounds


You are lost in a game

And blinded by a sight you think is light

But in the dark

Only I can dance under the moon

Only I can rebirth

Every time stronger than before


I will leave you

As you have held me

Heart cold, looking away


I will run like a wolf 

Towards arms of other soul

One with brighter eyes and a stronger heart


I will leave you

While I bleed from the memory

Of what I've seen behind the wall

Of who I’ve seen that you could be

My feet are in Europe (most of the time). My dreams take me everywhere. I love to write. It helps me being centered and travelling through my inner world. If you have to read one piece from me, .. more..
