Thorny Red Rose

Thorny Red Rose

A Poem by LivingDeath

A thorny red rose
lays in my path
down the road I walk.

Closer and closer I get
its petals pull me in 
until I'm within reach.

Bruised and broke
from the rocky path
I yell from the pain.

I will not touch the rose
I don't wish to feel the thorns
I will resist the petals.

How long will it be
till the red rose wilts,
how long will it be
till I cave in.

I really like this. Love wasn't exactly what i picked up on. However I got that so much had happened and another spike was coming and you were trying to stop. However that is my opinion either way the poem was very good.

This was beautiful. It had strong visual description. This poem had a message of intense pain. This was a good write.

I felt this way at times in my own life and it wasn't from love..it was from abuse of another kind...It is a deep and sensitive write when you can't express it all on paper but it is in your heart..Just hang on as we all do care...love Kathie God loves you too.

great poem, i didn't get the feeling that it was about love, i got the feeling that it was something that you wanted badly but needed to resist, because it could hurt you in the end but not being able to have it was killing you just as much..could be anything..just my take on it..

The poem is powerful. Seem like things are in our reach and we don't want them. The yearning to touch and give in is strong. Total poem is very good. I like the open ending. A excellent poem.

Is the rose a symbolism for a person that has or is hurting you? That was just what I took from it. You are a very very good writer. I mean, I really like your stuff.
