Hello, my name is Rose. Sometimes I write things, but inspiration is a bit fickle. Feedback is welcome. Appreciate ya.


I can’t taste the venom

Beneath the honey of your tongue.

Can’t hear the lies;

So sweetly they were sung

I can’t look past your warmth

to see wastelands within;

I worship the sinner,

I cannot hate the sin.

I’ll never see the light again,

for I thought you held the sun.

I can’t know your cruelty,

you've already won.

I’ll never love another

with your fingers on my heart;

I’ll just fall into the abyss

As you tear my world apart

      Tense, mature and edgy.

      I could see it and feel it.

      Rose, how tragic to be clutched

      by the evil that lies within

      Quite different from the way it will begin

      But, you must extract yourself from the evil end



      Blessing my friend
