Rose

A Poem by Funke Kolapo
"

The other side of love

"
Two sides to life

Two faces

Two edges

And so are you



Underneath your beauty

You hid your thorns

A double faced monster

Posing as a beauty



You crept in

like a shadow

You are a plague

Seeping through the pores



Poisoned the blood

Wormed your way to the heart

Ravaged the whole body

Beyond repair



You left passion

Where your hands touched

Only to replace them

With delightful pain



Smother you I should

When you were in me

With the heat of my passion

And my burning gaze



Silence me you should

When you had the chance

For all you left behind

Is a wounded snake

Yes indeed, some attractive coloured sweets often leave a most unpleasant taste!

An intriguing, cleverly written poem of the perils and issues of involvement with those of superficial character!
