Rain of Rose Petals

A rain of rose petals

dripping, soaking
like smears of red blood
seeping into my skin
with words of madness
in the poetry of the possessed

weaving cobwebs in my mind
blueprints of things to come
swirling colours through my soul
visions of things long past

encasing me in bare stark branches
of if and must be and never will
entombing me in an impenetrable cast
of wishes that never came true

scenting the cool air
with smells of decay and yesterday
reeking of treasured memories
long gone and forgotten

tasting of kisses like butterflies
and a warm, soft embrace
flavoured with sunny days
and lollipops and sugar mice,
bruised knees and candy

The tender rain of rose petals.
