Red Rose

Pieces of Shattered lives

A broken relationship left to die

Pain rippling from a thousand knives,

Confused thoughts and questions why

The distance between two so close

A crate defacing a beauty wild

The blackened edges of a red rose

Hatred filling a loving child

All the things that went wrong

The never ending argument of forbidden lust

Remembrance of a love now gone

The last tear falling

Turning to dust.
