I picked a rose one day
it was so beautiful
it smelled so sweet

One day I held it
but was too blind to see
the thorns of my rose
-hurting me-

It stung so sadly
and scarred me clear through
so I put the rose down

It called to me
begged me,
to touch it again
but this time
I knew the thorns
were there

I picked it up carefully
hoping I wouldn't get hurt

But again,
those thorns hurt me.
I didn't want
that rose anymore........

Still beautiful
Still sweet

This is great sea! It brings to mind an old saying "There is no pleasure without pain", I think that fits. Well done.

Real nicely presented.
Roses are a great subject.

Sally, yes life and love. It was about someone I used to love very much, but he kept hurting me , so I let him go. Glad you liked it.

Very nice poem, it made me think of myself being the rose trusting others to love, then getting hurt again. then giving up on him and still wanting him in my presence. beautiful!

I heard a quote one time...I'm not sure who said it and I'm probably not totally right on the translation, but it went something to this effect:
When some people look at roses, they see the beautiful flower and ask God why he gave it thorns;
When I look at a rose, I see the thorns and thank God that he gave them beautiful flowers.

Well done poem, Sea. This poem is another classic along with the rest of the rose poems.
