Wilting Love


Your petals are closed
Your wilting away
The pull of our lust has loosened

For you are my rose
Red and raw
Your thorns - So prickly
Can't smell your scent anymore

Cutting into my skin
Deep into my core
Your thorns are piercing
More than you know

I've tried to be your sun
& even your rain
To see your petals
Once again

To peel back the layers
Searching for the beauty within
I know it's there
Just let me in?

For you were my rose
Once upon a time
I don't know what happened?
Though I longed to be yours
And for you to be mine

Only time will tell
I do hope we blossom
For the thorns are now scarring my skin
I feel like I'm losing you
Petal by petal
My spirit now wilting within
