BLOOD RED ROSE

By Miguel S.


Blood red rose

You caught my eye

Like nothing else before

You had me hypnotized


Blood red rose

You yearned to be touched

And knowing of your thorns

I did so in a rush


Blood red rose

I could not let go

Your thorns pricked my skin

My blood began to flow


Blood red rose

The pain made my heart drop

But your color grew richer

Something I couldn’t stop


Blood red rose

The thirst didn’t cease

I grew cold and pale

While your hold increased


Blood red rose

I slowly withered away

And once the time came

You had no reason to stay


Blood red rose

Using the blood you gained

You planted yourself in the ground

And waited in rain


You waited still

Looking for another feeling low

For your chance to feed again

The blood red rose
