He handed me a rose,
I held it in my hand,
Only to realize it was plastic.

Looking down at the rose,
I realized something,
Not only was the rose fake,
Our love had been fake too.

With him still standing there,
I threw the rose on the ground,
Stepped on it and walked away,
Leaving behind the rose and our love.

This story is about a girl getting a rose -- only to realize that it's fake, along with the "love" they shared

Thanks. I wanted the connection to be seen, so I'm glad it got the point across.

Thanks... Yeah, the rose was just a kind gesture to the girl, but something in her mind clicked.. She realized not only was the rose she was holding in her hand fake, so was their so called "love."

I really like the conection between the girl and the rose, even though they are two completely different things.
