Thorn

A soft and dainty flower, I hold
Arms so tender, yet strong as time
Protecting innocence with a vengeance
Bold and vibrant, professing its purpose

Surely, such a rose has no thorn
Here among the lands of my dreams
Yet as I cradle it close in hand
I can feel my very essence bleed

As morning brings the sun to dance
I find my faith, still lingers on
As petals and stings of a taunting rose
Fade before my eyes....
Then gone....
