Thorns and All #poetry #photography

red rose

How many loved you

the way I did

 shadowy our days

 wings of abandon

beneath the crashing waves

*

how many loved you

listening for your step

on lips we sipped and grazed

moon light in your eyes

melting in your gaze

*

how many loved you

picked away the thorns

begged you back

petals plucked  away

you left the soil to crack

*

how many loved you

willing your return

have to staunch the burn

no beauty in your leaving

but pain we have to learn
