she was a rose

in the hands

of those

who had no 


of keeping her

but who keeps

a rose

they fade

and lose their


roses aren’t for keeping

they’re best admired


they keep their bloom

admire, inhale

treat gently and move on

treat roses cautiously 

they are apt to prick

to pierce your skin

and make you bleed.

From light and bitter on Wattpad.
