petals plunge

Remember the roses

their white wisdom waning

our loud hearts deafen amongst

heated night rains


Remember the roses

richly red as life he once gave

now set ablaze, under the morning

light’s wrath


Remember the roses

vicious and violent

the shade of his blood

long resting upon the sun


Remember the roses

blistering into blackness

as the winds rise again

send me away until the next year


Petals plunge, heavily

honor slaying at our souls

You could have run, he said

well, I’m running now



blissful and blind
