     Rose


Like an unfolded rose
I kept my love inside
Closed
From the world's touch
Protected
From deceitful hands

Your words
Like the sun's rays
Opened
Closed petals
Exposing a sheltered love
Vulnerable

Fully bloomed and opened to all
Suddenly
Your words
The sun's rays
Gone

Your words
Cease
My petals fall
Wither then blow away
Cold and dark my love
Dies and fades
