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

  1. yea...a rose could be deceiving... a beautiful flower, who would doubt??? but beware of its thorns.. great reads!!!:D

  2. 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.

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

  7. 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
