The Blind Rose

By lshidonil

Don't you see,
What you are doing to me?
I accept you and forgive you,
no matter what,
and only because I love you.

Yet, you only accept me to a point
And once you get there,
I'm left in the woods without you,
my mind spinning,
on which way to go.

You were my guide,
my light.
Now you have blown out,
with the only thing left is silver whisper in the wind

And the only thing that blew you out,
was because I didn't give you the right words to keep burning.

The one time I need you to take my words for what they are,
You deny me.

That is, after all the times I took you into my arms and wiped your mistakes off with my held in tears.

I never felt I wronged you. 
I guess I made a choice that you didn't like,
and with that,
a rose that was once bright and beautiful,
is crumbling to ashes.

    The thing about poetry is that it has the power to make something so tragic so beautiful. Amazing piece, and i hope this helps you cope. Cheers!

    This is so sad! But beautifully written and easily understood. I love "I never felt I wronged you". Strongly emotive. Kudos.
