Death of the Rose


How do I say
what needs to be said
if my tongue wonít move
regardless of the voice in my head

The yellow rose knows
but is throatless
or refuses to speak
in spite of itís mess

A tear on each petal
the rose weeps in stupidity
it will die soon
unable to fight the endless humidity

I turn away from a looking glass
A reflection I donít want to see
This hurtful person
When did it become me?

Marina you made me think about how sometimes we have to be strong and assertive and in the process someone may get hurt but it is something we must do or much more hurt and pain will come later.   James

James that is a very interesting thought.  I love how people can see so many different things in one poem.  Thanks for the post.

Marina,
       though the petals fall, the seeds remain,
       to be brought to life again by the gentle rain
       to bloom again in the dawn of the new day
       and to take all the tears and sadness away. . .

You will bloom again, my friend. . .wonderful poem. . .

Danny, don't worry I'll be back to myself in no time.  As a matter of fact check back to my adult poem....I left you a little something.

Amy, You are truly very sweet to say such a wonderful compliment about my poetry.  Thank you so very much.

weaubleau, thank you

Sven...you are a true friend.  Your little poetic response was just what I needed!

Sven,

If I should bloom
I hope it be soon
And no more gloom
released from my cocoon


Thank you
Marina
