Like A Rose

Like A Rose

A Poem by The Reverend, S. D. Blankenship DD. Ph. D.
"

A bloody egg yolk. A burnt hole spreading in a sheet. An enraged rose threatening to bloom. ~May Swenson.

"

 The passion there in your heart,



has forlornly torn us equally apart.



The caress of your body has come to pass,



like a child still in school during class.



Your kissing lips bring a cheerless embark,



like animals on a bronze in a park.



Your tender clear skin starts to blight,



just as the moon comes up by night.



Winter's here and you are not,



but Honey dear I haven't forgot.



Now until then I say farewell,



and tonight we will leave this Hell.



Like A Rose, in any season, I see you smile, of red,



eyes so true. I love you,



Now with this all said I will listen for you my dear,



I shall die with out you now so please take care.



Like A Rose.
