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~

    "A place where darkness prunes itself another day." Many fine lines - I like this one especially. Love, daver

    The opening line in the first 2 verses are perfect. The poem is seldom what it at first read seems to be about. Beautiful evocative lines. Thank you for your comments on my poems - and reminding me I actually have this account!

    Eloquent lines, beautifully woven! "...The echoes of my heart still call out your name..." This captures powerfully the position of a heart brooding on its loss.

    Rose reminded me of of a famous poem in my mother tongue(Malayalam) . The momentary life of us make us write. I may suggest you to write in stanzas short. So will be more appealing. Thank you friend

    This is truly one of my favs from you Linda. So much expression and so much wonderful imagery. You put me in your shoes picturing you clutching a rose near a tomb. Absolutely awesome. Blessings and hugs Carl

    Sorry I haven't been around to torment you in a while. It's just no fun when when everyone just showers praise... that having been said, I have to admit that this is quite exceptional. Poetic introspection at its finest.

    My 21-yr-old daughter lost her fiancé to cystic fibrosis last year. This sounds like her talking. Very powerful.

    It's sad that age tends to bring us in contact with the waiting ender more and more. It's tough and painful, but we have to make room for the new additions. You will live forever (or as long as we survive electronically) in your words. How about that? A pleasure you are!!
