    She roused firm
    And bright
    As the light shine down
    On which she thrived and grew….
    But left wit out nourishment
    And the rays from the sun
    She dies slowly….
    As the petals fold and the
    Leafs begin to fall
    A art of beauty destroyed
    By the hands that planted
    The seed…..
    Not knowin why…
    ------------------------------------------
    soul broke heart in the wind
    hopin not to catch it again
    as it leave this place…
    it takes a lot within
    thats now lost...
    as it begins to die
    The only thing it knew for sure
    Well use to know
    Is that love was there
    Clouds cover as rain of salt
    eats away at the skin…..
    blood turn blue
    And it dies a slow death
    no place for the sun
    it no longer
    have a home…
    eyes closed as it takes
    its last breath
    yearn to live
    yearn to be
    yearn of desires…
    placed in fires...
    as it passes
    The Rose........

    pieces of untitle life

    As long as love is/was known, the rose will live eternally, if not physically, mentally.

    Nice piece.

    Mz Blk Angel...

    I agree with PositiveMindSet...love has lost it's physical nature and has gone to another realm, but it's spirit is eternal...every lasting.

    Nice...very nice.

    Very touching descriptive piece, I could see the rose dying, but not fading completely to black.
