The Deadly Rose

I looked around the garden

Gazing with admiration

The bright and vibrant flowers

God's flawless creation

 

On the right were the lilies

On the left were the tulips

So beautifully arranged

A smile forming on my lips

 

I strolled a little further

And saw the most beautiful rose

It was glowing in the sunlight

Watered recently by a hose

 

My fingers itched to hold it

Awestruck by its charm

I went to touch it slowly

Unaware that it could even harm

 

As I gently touched its stem

I saw blood on my fingers

The pain seeping in my skin

Like a sad song of those singers

 

I looked at the red devil

And saw the thorns around

The beauty was on the surface

Inside it couldn't be found

 

So we should see the heart inside

Not the outside grace it shows

Or one day you'll have to face

The curse of the deadly rose
