Black Roses


Color of darkness,
Hue of sorrow,
Shade of pain,
Embodied in that bloom,
One that he has
Created from his tears,
From his blood,
For her,
Only for her,
In remembrance of their
Broken promises,
Blooming in his garden,
The flowers of dead love,
Adorned with the scars
Of a shattered heart,
Flourish those black roses.

    Love your expression of dead love. It's dark with a lot of meaning. I especially liked the last line: the flowers of dead love, adorned with the scars of a shattered heart, flourish those black roses. Keep writing. Thank you for your comment on my poem: Being Bereft, I greatly appreciated it. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Actually black roses are red roses thaf have a darker red pigment. But how fitting a red rose to signify one's love for someone and a black rose (red) for love that has wronged. (Report) Reply

    The flowers of dead love,
