Roses & Thorns

You compared me
to a rose
in all its beauty
Forgetting the thorns
it uses to protect
itself
I thought at first
you were mistaken
I’m just a girl
Average and unremarkable
With you gone
I see the comparison
now
My thorns pricked
you a few too many
times
And though the pain
not unbearable
You couldn’t experience
it daily

  1. A rose to you for that. The thorns on the rose were not meant to prick the butterflies or bees. It was only meant for the rowdy goat trying to chomp down the beautiful flower. So a real butterfly or a bee would know how to approach the rose…just my thought…
