Remnamts of the Rose

April 30, 2009
My life is like a rose,
Elegant crimson like blood in the snow.
It begins beautiful,
With soft petals,
Like a mothers love.
Then it all falls apart,
Piece by piece,
Wilting into a hidious
remainder of what it used to be.
The beautiful red now fades to black,
Like a starless, moonless night.
And then, the petals
Leaving a deminished corpse
of what it used to be.
