A Rose Redeemed

Lovers lured, sweet kiss of lust;
tangled limbs, uncertainty trust.
Red rose in a vase, rich and deep,
fragrance so fleeting, time cannot keep.

Shattered dreams scream in the night,
as innocence succumbs to dreaded plight.
Red rose in a vase, now wilted and dry,
lovers lost under a cold night’s sky.

Kiss and depart, no more speak of this.
Who said we should wait for wedded bliss?
Deception will leave his dark ugly scar,
whilst knowledge will no heart or body marr.

A Rose Redeemed
