You make me rely on anaerobic respiration, cause baby you take my breath away <3

Haw can something so beautiful cause such pain?
A rose in full bloom,
So delicate and inspiring,
Concealing sharp thorns.

Swept up in the whole of it,
Walls start coming down.
Soon you’re unguarded,
Vulnerable yet exhilarated.

And when you least expect it,
A pain,
A stinging sensation.
You had forgotten about the thorns,
And no sooner had these dangers,
Pushed to the back for your mind,
Hurt you.

Walls come back up,
Yet the scar lingers.
A reminder.
Because that thorn in your finger,
Was really a knife in your back.

The author's comments:
This piece is comparing the qualities and emotions tied to a rose, to friendships and relationships. How it is beautiful, admirable, but there are always those small things that can hurt you, thorns, because when you felt secure, you become less careful, and that is when you’re most likely to fall, to be betrayed, but you didn’t expect such a wonderful, innocent thing could cause you such pain.
