The Faded Flower (working title)  
 
'Love is a rose,  
you better not pick it'  
Because  
'Every rose has its thorn.'  
But  
'Is it a sin to seek the truth  
The truth beneath the rose?'  
Would  
'A rose by any other name  
still smell as sweet?'  
 
'A rose is still a rose',  
and yet...  
   
Blush-colored cheeks and glasses.
Shards of plastic
Crushed petals,
Naivete forgone, open eyes gaze  
'Stand not amazed'  
The world's a scary place  
 
when your rose-colored glasses are broken.
