The White Roses Died with You

White dove's wings flutter in crepuscular light As I visit your gravestone's marbled sadness To let my soul linger through the long night Still, the loneliness now measured in years A beggar of alms for the price of love's tears Pulled from the grave of my heart's madness On my knees of torment, I scream at the pain For my soul of white roses turned midnight blue Death stole their lifeblood, your love had sustain Now buried in memories when the daylight fades Left with nothing but darker realms of shades When all the white roses died with you 12/27/18 contest Rhymes times 7-deep and Dark
