Bloody Rose


I found a rose covered in blood,
I wondered how it survived?
I took that rose in my hands
I placed it next to my heart.
The rose grew roots on my heart.
It took my blood to survive.
It fed from hopes, dreams and laughs.
It made me shiver and shine.

Although the rose was taking away,
The energy stored in this facade.
My nights, my days. My moonlight sun
It made me happy. It gave me joy
Losing my soul I didn't mind.
Giving my life just to survive.
The rose knew this, knew this and more.
It didn't care, for it was strong.
It wasn't weak. Not anymore

It tore itself away from me.
Ripping my heart. making it bleed
Piece by piece. deeper than deep
The cuts. the holes. The pain. The tears 
It didn't stop, till it was free
While my heart bleeding 'stay' beseeched.
It didn't care. It walked away
Leaving a mess behind itself

Now I move on forward with my life
Lost. Heartless. Soulless. with out a fight
Wondering and wondering. with pain and fears.
Loneliness. Silence. Cries and more tears.

Today as a lay my head on my hands
Seeking with out finding in this dark land.
I can't help but ask this simple lie.
I found a rose covered in blood
Why did I place it next to my heart?

    You longed to keep someone wounded close to your heart.... You found joy and companionship in him/her. For long that person drew sustenance from you and thrived. But breaking all ties, oneday he walked away, leaving you bereft of joy and pushing you into loneliness..... Don't take it so hard.... That's the way of the world... probably someone else will come to your life to give greater joy! I am sure 'bloody Rose' is a metaphor here...

    Nice that Nika introduced you to me! (Report) Reply

    Interesting way of describing a relationship. Some people are indeed parasites and will just take and then walk away (Report) Reply
