Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.
Khalil Gibran


Silky smooth petals adorn the salient thorn
Yet if you look behind the grace you'll find the rose will scorn

Its easy to mistake me for something angelic
But if you look inside You'll find not much to relic

Great imagrey, it was like the rose was in my hand! I like how you used the first stanza to compare yourself to in the next. I think you should or can make this into a very nice haiku (2 or more of course) since you have so much rythmn and precise writting pattern here. Definatley a good double endenre, keep writing!

Thank you so much! I agree. I could have done better on the second half... Do you know how I can edit my pieces?

The first half of your poem is perfect. It flows extremely well and is beautifully written. The second part isn't as eloquent, but it's still amazingly good. I really like it!
