I put the petal to my cheek
Thick and soft
So strong and fragrant
Curving gently unified
Every petal a unique beauty
Every rose, intricate loveliness
Thorned and reaching toward the light
Who said thorns were bad?
Gentle curves into a point
Deep red fading
Dotted across the luscious stems

Favorite Quote:
“Sure, I can talk like you, but I choose not to, It's like an art, you know? Picasso had to prove to the world he could paint the right way, before he goes putting both eyes on the side of a face... See if you paint wrong because that's the best you can do, you just a chump. But you do it because you want to? Then you're an artist...You can take that to the grave and dig it up when you need it.”
― Neal Shusterman, Unwind

Wonderful word choice. It truly is beautiful.
