R.S. Mallari

Poisonous Rose

You were so lovely back then
like a rose picked from a garden
a glimpse was more than enough
to enslave my lonely heart

And Like a bee I have longed
that sweet nectar you possess
never thought I would be wrong
sweet poison, pain all you’ve caused

Angelic smiles, all were facades
to hide the ugliness inside you
tears you shed, part of masquerade
so blinded, I haven’t had a clue

Then you have left me for dead
wearing the mask of deception
like a rose glowing in bright red
the pretender, back in her throne

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

If it's a rose I can accept the pain she inflicts. If she is a woman, there is no excuse for having a beautiful exterior and a thorny interior.

Well written. The masks people wear can indeed hide ugly things.

Thank you all guys for taking time to read. A comedian in a suit is fine, but a devil in disguise is something.

ahhh! well expressed.

though the pain lingers
memories slow to fade
we learned a thing or
two from the experience
that never again to repeat

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
