The Last Rose Petal Drops

Knocked down in the street
She struggles to her feet
Just another runaway who cant run away,
She sells her inner light
To the predators at night
So the violent man gets paid
She paints on lipstick smiles
It gets her thru the miles
But her body shows the wear
She vows one day to quit
But her word just isnt worth spit
And they would kill her if she dared
One day all bruised and sore
She wakes on a dirty floor
And she feels all inside has stopped
They zip her in a bag
Put Jane Doe on her tag
As the last rose petal drops

    Hi Carl, An Interesting and sad write here my friend. What people have to do just to survive sometimes, and to think, If a helping hand were given things would quite possibly not have been so. You have painted a hard life In stark reality my Friend. It seems there was only one way this life would end. I know It happens for real, such a sad ending to a life. This Is a well written poem on a sad subject Carl. Well done. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE

    Carl, Once again, we find ourselves trapped in the Holiday Season. And, hear I am stopping by to say Hi and to wish you a Merry Christmas once again sincerely from my heart. Loving each moment I found comforting here on the soup. Thank you for any comment or support you have offered now or in the past. Love always & forever ~ PD

I hope and pray you are well my friend and you are with people who love you,, God bless,peace, and warmest love your friend Carl

    Wow! I have a similar write called Lost Girls but it doesn't paint the picture quite like this. My niece was missing for 2 weeks and everyone feared she'd end up like the girl in your poem. Excellent write!
