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. ~by deborah burch© 5/05/2012 "Rime Couee"

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
