    A beautiful rose
    the petals a crimson red
    picked from the garden
    freshly bloom
    kissed and revered
    he marvels at her beauty
    water with love
    her fragrance he consumes
    In time
    the color fades
    but the fragrance remains
    the petals reaching blindly
    for a sip of fallen rain
    her beauty is still evident
    by lack of love.....she thirsts
    growing limp, withered and dry
    sadden by lackluster
    the forgotten rose she has become
    awaiting to be noticed
    so again........
    she can bloom

    through sun and rain joy and pain
    you- she will always remain
    a rose- blossomed.

    nice piece you have placed in the garden queen.

    METAPHORICALLY SPEAKING!

    I loved the read and the use of metaphors which were subtle and
    melancholy, but oh so true for a few! Luckily not me and you!
    Keep scribin and survivin. ONE LOVE!

    forgotten...NEVER.

    your love is like a red, red rose
    it's velvety soft and it grows and grows
    green trims for go and the red to stop
    things you should do and others you should not
    as fresh as you are on a sun shiny day
    ...filled with love and these words i'll say
    sweet love to you for i love you, my dear
    with a red rose fragrance and i am sincere


    allow me to feed you
    to water you
    to be responsible
    for the growth
    and love of you

    never will you be allowed to
    whither
    shiver
    to have your hopes and dreams
    undelivered

    YOU ARE NOTICED.
