Dying red Rose

Dying red Rose

A Poem by Bridget Mcmaken

A red rose held in her hand

The rose that was given by her man

Memories flood her mind as she looks at it

So bright and happy their love is to be

Life goes on and things are changing

The red rose was like no other

The man gave her a red rose for love

As long as they love one another the rose stays the red color

As days go on and time passes by

The rose is losing it's color

Everyday the red fades

Turning into a black

The girl looks back at her hands

In the pass she seen

She looked at what was the red rose

Black as it could be

A tear falls from her eyes

Not till then did she understand

The black rose held in her hand

A tears falls from her dark eyes

The rose stayed alive because of the love it was given

Not to the rose

But the love the woman and man felt

Sadness over whelms

She drops the black rose on the ground

Turning her back to the rose and walks away

Wishing she could have saved the rose

Wishing it would have stayed red

Now it lays on the cold dry ground

its was an okay poem but i think would have flowed better had it read more as a small story, especially since as i was reading it the poem read more like a story than a poem. there were a few spots grammar errors but it wasn't too many.

It paints a nice picture, sad though that her love died.
