Like an Oleander
Love can be beautiful,
Colorful and wonderful,
Yet to all the wiser
She holds a deadly cipher.

Like an Oleander
Hiding her true self in beauty
Deceiving the naive who knew no better,
Poisoning the lover who sold her sanity
For a beautiful man who loved her never.

Like an Oleander
Love shares the beauties in life
But handled trite will do no better,
For the flower holds a deadly blight,
An inevitable poison with a morbid closure.

I couldn't help but think of the White Oleander. Have you read it and/or watched it?

I've never heard of it. I actually ended up writing this because i wanted to write about a flower so  I looked some up and this caught my eye. I'm definitely going t look up White Oleander though! Thank you !
