Favorite Quote:
"I will not say do not weep for not all tears are an evil" - J.R.R. Tolkien

Delicate and so fragile

Yet so heavily guarded

A cut upon thy flesh 

Blood raining down upon your soft and sweet delicate petals

Taking upon thy sweet life force

Bloody rose I hold you close to my heart

My eyes close in an eternal slumber 

The author's comments:

My grandmother is in the hospital from conjested heart failure. She had fluid in her lungs and around her heart. She is doing fine now,But when I found out she was in hospital, I started thinking "this is it she is gonna die". I was so afraid of losing her that I started to feel depressed. So I wrote a poem to express how I felt and how losing her would be like taking away everything I am. "A cut upon they flesh, blood raing doen upon your soft and sweet delicate petals, taking upon thy sweet life force" is talking bout her heart failing on her and how losing her is like taking everything I am, Everything I live for.
