THE ROSE

~THE ROSE~

This is not a poem about a rose
Nor a poem, about diligence and beauty
Today, I sit and stare at the walls
Walls, that bare the complexity of life
Every breath, every tear I shed in my room
Set out to pollinate every seed, every bud-
Where life once was the perfection of everything
Now, water drops as I drown in my sentiments
Sentiments that no longer hold meaning
I feel so empty now that you are deceased 
 
This is not a poem about a rose,
Rather, it may be, I write about death
Death is a man with no face
A man who sits every night
Patiently he sits on the edge of everything
Waiting and waiting--
For the thorn to prick the stem of who I am,
Who I used to be, in hopes I end the suffering

Every night death sits on the bedside  
He's been watching and waiting 
As I gaze deep into the dark watery walls
losing the strength and resilience in my eyes.
Creating a dormancy, shutting out light
A place where darkness prunes itself another day
There I draw the silhouettes where life once bloomed
The echoes of my heart still call out your name
A name that no longer exists by my side
Slowly, the musk withers into the air 
In remembrance, you were once here
Perfection Gone, ~And a rose is just a rose~

    This poem is very relatable, and the poet's ability to share with the reader is one of the most important aspects in my opinion. Both technically and emotionally, it is eloquently and beautifully written.

    Great subject matter ...I just wished you went in depth with the 2nd stanza

    You never cease to amaze!! I'm not back but it seems I must...

    Wow... I just came to see if you've posted anything and I see that I'm unblocked now! Yippee! So I can tell you now that I think this poem is so beautiful and sad and very emotive... you're an amazing poet. I mean this sincerely, and just wanted to tell you while I have the opportunity.

    Evocative. I think that's the word I would use to describe this one. Very emotionally charged and vulnerable, in a way. I suppose we can take courage in the fact that after the pruning and long, cold, flowerless winters, roses come back. Interesting that the rose is often a symbol of purity, and the delicate while almost paradoxically being so thorny, hearty, and resilient.

    You write so beautifully, but why is this one so morbid? There are so many nice things to say about a rose if we can just lighten up a bit. Will I have to suffer a painful loss before I can write well? I don't have such a problem. Maybe that's my problem!

    You revealed a depth of emotions that only a gifted and true poet would dare to write. An excellently written piece and one that encourages me to read more of your work.

    I am left with no doubt about the futility to hold to beauty as an elixir I savor the line "thorn to prick the stem of who I am,"

    Dear Linda I'm reading I think to come back on the air, I had some set backs but am feeling better now, nothing life threatening by the way. Just discouraging if you know what I mean, so I wanted to say that I'm fine now, and thanks for everything sis, I appreciate everything you've done on my behalf. How are you and yours, hope your well and that your move went well. take care and hope to hear from you soon love ya sis, cheri

    Hi Linda, came back to read this again- love the amazing depth...also want to just say that I am really glad you are back here...hope you will be posting many more poems! ( I had a very bad social media experience, because of expressing my own personal opinions, so I think I understand how it feels...take it easy, ok?) Big Hugs!!

    I thought this poem was ...OUTSTANDING...Glad to follow your writings
  1. Date: 5/18/2016 1:49:00 PM

    There are emotions in this poem that can be felt deeply by the reader. The sense of loss and spirit, the the colors in life turn to gray or black and white. where emptiness invades the heart and spirit. extremely intense writing,

    Beautiful! Thank you so much for your comments and the welcome. You're a great poet!
  1. Date: 5/16/2016 6:56:00 PM

    Wow... very nice poem! It just screams your feelings in that, I love the wording and just everything about it. I write poems like that all the time but you just blew mine out of the water. It's awesome.

    Monologue is outside my experience, but the drama of this piece held my attention. I may be wrong, but lost love is very much like death. Is that what this is about? The drama of this reminds me of play writing. Have you tried writing a play?

    Makes me feel the loneliness and grief.

    Deeply rich and fine as flight. Resonates with Spring Rain Memories, with my half empty half overflowing front porch swaying swing. With warm gratitude. Gerald Oliver

    Emotive, introspective, and with tidbits of wit intermixed. You continue to see things differently PD, and that's one of things that makes your poems fascinating to read.
