Rose Petals

Roses are romantic symbols, our romantic symbols
A way to express our feelings
The red petals are so delicate, so soft, so easy to tear apart
However, petals fall to the ground torn apart
Just imagine the petals to be pieces of a heart, its broken
The pain that the heart has suffered hurts, it hurts a lot
The heart is one that cannot be pieced together anymore
The smell of the roses were so alluring, so fresh, so irresistible
I breathe in the scent hoping it stays, long enough to last
The wet drops on the rose petals are my tears
I threw out the roses because my heart is broken
It was one of the most important memories; for I have always loved roses
After the day he gave me those beautiful red roses, things were never the same
The roses slowly dry out day by day, fading away
The green stem, is supposedly a sign of life but the thorns hurt when you prick your finger as a small pool of blood forms
The water keeps the roses alive
I don’t feel alive anymore
Not after he left me, I didn’t know how to breathe anymore
I felt empty, so empty that I couldn’t hear my heart beat
He was the water and I was the rose
It was like an ocean without water
Without him, I feel incomplete, empty and alone
Just watching the rose petals fall one by one
Waiting for him to come back to me

Wow. Truly a piece of art. You really do get better and better each time. Man, by the time you write ten more poems, you'll be unstoppable! (THAT'S A GOOD THING) :)
