Tragic Illusions This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

Blood behind roses,
Pain echoing the shutting doors,
Lies coloring every tone,
Shadows of kisses,
And hints of wane smiles

Once, it was
Beautiful

I like the tragedy behind it all and after every line, I paused and illustrated a tragedy to fit the line in my head. I love the thinking behind this poem.
