"A rose for a rose"

  Here's a captivating rose
     She takes hold, procures a prick from a thorn prior to placing the plant to her nose
     "Be careful my love"
     Sucks her finger, spot of blood
     Shakes it off, resuming her fondness for the flower, allured by a whiff
     Enjoying every nanosecond with each precious pedal for what it is
     Just to have an allergic reaction take flight due to pollen turning poisonous
     "This is getting quite ridiculous"
     She can't believe
     How hard it has become to breath
     Swollen vocal cords make it near impossible to speak
     How can something so delicate bring her down on knees?
     Gagging pleas!
     I am trying real hard to understand what she's saying
     Protesting why anything this stunning would create destruction, inducing such pain
     "It's crazy when great minds think alike sweetie
     I was gaping down at you speculating the same thing
