Kelly Seale Poems
'A Rose By Anyother Name'
Look at me.
You see yourself as a dandelion,
one of many, and not at all special:
Yet, still considered a flower by some.
In reality, You are a Rose,
deep, rich red, delicate passion pink.
Soft, satiny petals,
And yet, you do have your thorns.
You keep those around you at a distance.
Seemingly to be safe,
but there is nothing to be afraid of.
So look at me...
You are in your prime, your beauty is in full bloom.
Feel it, let it happen, it's become a part of you.
You have such a special gift, in which you deny yourself
the pleasure of ...
The way you touched me,
The way you touched everybody-
Was like a domino effect.
The way you loved, the way you laughed, the way you lived-
Thinking about you now,
The memories of you
Are as thick as honey,
And haunt me in my dreams.
