Tears of a Rose


                © Image by Destiny to Write Publications

Blood-red roses are my mark
As bloodshed tears commence,
to fall in such heartfelt sorrow
Lapping in a pool of desolation

Tomorrow seems ever so distant
As each day becomes a new trial
One to overcome, a ceaseless battle
In which confounds the minds-eye 

Longing to see, as the fates conspire
Even as one may hold destiny in hands
Nothing shall ever go according to plans
All for naught, descending into the void

Be there no reason, nor season of serenity
As the essence bleeds in ceaseless fashion
Grief-stricken, inconsolable beyond repair
Grasping unto faith, with a desire of hope

The rose shall bleed continuously in time
Elapsing in a comatose induced, disposition
Where there is no harmony, nor tranquility
Only a living nightmare infused by destiny

As darkness descends, the light fades away
I take two steps back, falling now to knees
Pleading with the heavens above in prayer
In hopes of wisdom, compassion and love

The right course of action to follow through
The guidance of the light, of enlightenment
The strength to carry on, despite adversity
With an open heart, the grace of loves gift
