Death Of A Rose

"When the rose dies it falls open, spreading perfume. You will become a window for every house. You will be a rose garden in every field."~Rumi


There were no secrets between us...
        Oh! Beauty's unveiled saline rush!
                Deception is now done.
                        Every man knows your scoring gush...
                                Fate! Has now claimed my only blush!
                                        A Harlot's life begun.

    Deborah, I assume death can be a beautiful symbol at times when life needs a way to escape. I am glad their is no secrets between you and that special person, under some circumstances, all should reveal itself in do time. Like a rose.. Alternatively your metaphor indicates that whatever you are comparing that person represents they have no part in your new beginning's. Still like a rose, it is enlightened with beauty, and has to leave after a short time of admiration. enjoyed your poem,.PD
