Black Rose

Black Rose

A Poem by Queen of Hearts

A cry for help
    That none can hear                        
A soft little yelp
That no one can clear                     

A tear that glides down
Wets the face                           
And intensifies the frown
Yet not leaving a trace              

A cruel little game
That everyone plays                       
Yet there is no blame
But it makes a craze                    

Eyes shut close
Awaiting the worst                            
Like a black rose
Ready to burst
