A black single rose a single

A Black Single Rose.

A single black rose.

A single black rose to carry the load,

A single black rose to turn the road,

A single black rose to touch the soul,

A single black rose to widen your hole,

A single black rose to melt your heart,

A single black rose to force a start,

A single black rose to make you cry,

A single black rose to make you dry,

A single black rose to help you climb,

A single black rose to make you lie,

A single black rose to take a life,

A single black rose to take away strife.

First rose a heart of youthful

First rose

A heart of youthful year was yearning,

Crying out the pain; the burning

Tears would e’er remain until

An answer from the man would see them die.

A sympathetic mirror blessed her –

Softened up the curves, caressed her

Skin to help regain a calm –

Assuage a heaving breast and blushing eye.

And through a struggling mind, a chiming:

Someone at the door; the timing

Perfect and exquisite in the

Reconciliation of her woes.
