Just a Rose

September 24, 2009
Just a rose
A cliché symbol of passion
Just a rose
Is all you bring, in-depth intellectual conversations
Do they mean a thing?
Just a rose
That was taken, cut from the Earth
Stolen from nature
You think I want
Just a rose
That will wither and die in a vase I despise?
Rootless, heartless, cold, scentless, and dry
Just a rose
What do you take me for?
I’m no prim, proper Barbie doll who wants it all and
Just a rose
Wrapped in paper that was once a tree
I don’t want a
Flower, an insignificant rose, from a murderer (a florist)
All I want is your love
But if you didn’t already know that
Then I suppose something is wrong
