Black Rose

Will black be the color of Death?
Or will my love bloom
A black black rose?

Will it be the color of Success?
Or will my blackened heart wilt away
The gold in this lovely rose I hold?

Will it be the color of the Hole
Sucking me further into the stamen of internal Void?
Or will I follow myself deeper into the petals of my Heart
Into the Light within the Life within this Love?

Perhaps it will be the color of Nothingness…
And experience inescapable disillusionments
Of every false red hope never in existence…
Because we are both too green…too far gone.
