The Red Rose

amongst the trellis
woven in green
thorny vines
a splash of crimson
peeks through
 
is this delicate rose
a symbol of love?
 
incipient desire
begins to flourish
within the depths of lust
 
allured by touch
velvet skin blushes red
through gentle stokes
 
passion drops 
beads of moisture
beneath soft folds
 
a quenched thirst
climaxes
through ecstasy 
then blossoms full
 
yet love's thorns
can pierce the heart
bleed it dry
until it withers
and dies
or becomes
hard pressed
in mind's book
as it fades to black...

    Here, I felt like I was reading this off a very old scroll. Whoever your poetic influence(s) is/are and the whatever circumstance(s) was/were that brought this piece to completion clearly shows the depth this piece was reeled in from. :)

    Men will not be disuaded by mere thorns. In the end a womans beauty captivates him. As always you capture my imagination.

    "Incipient desire", I thought I was the only one who used the word "Incipience". That's my favorite word. This was utterly intense.

    thank you Drake....I was determined to make that word work in this piece...sometimes I like to experiment and play with interesting new words...I really liked incipient! ...hugs :}

    HOw do you do this? Always writing such perfect free verse!!

    Adams Avatar Sandra Adams Date: 10/9/2013 4:24:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    free verse has always come easy for me...rhyming is my weakness...I always read my work as I write it, I read them aloud to see if they sound ok... ...thanks again...love and hugs :)

    thank you for the vote of confidence on this one...I had played with it for days...I wrote all my ideas as they came to life and then worked them into the poem... love and hugs :)
