"I don't walk the path designed. I take risks with the unknown"-- Almney King


A thorn rose prickle
brings a blood red trickle,
bitter iron rust.

Disgust in an expression
after a thorn rose confession;
of crimson of ruby of scarlet.

Dainty puddles descending
an aching throat,
smudged by the fingers of
one so fickle;
the one addicted
to a thorn rose prickle.

He and she found themselves
quite lone
desire to love
torched to the bone,
ashes blown
to a far out zone.

One must know
that it is foolish to go
collecting romance
where the thorn rose grow,
for a thorn rose prickle
by a love most fickle
brings a blood red trickle,
turns bitter iron rust
to bitter iron dust.


The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this piece because today, people really seem to be abusing relationships especially when it comes to love. Basically, it's a poem to guide young people towards people who will truly "love" them and stop treating love like a game.

Wow... this is gorgeous. You've really got a great sense of rhyme and rhythm, and it all fits within your theme, and that's just really, really awesome. Kudos on your use of diction, alliteration, etc. It really worked out well.
