The Caged Flower

perfumed scents    
of ancient wars          
strengthened behind        
wrought iron bars        
         
tortured petals        
labored breathing        
thorns of angst        
chest is heaving        
         
too much sun,          
burns pride to ash          
stay in darkness,          
rots all it's flesh        
         
toxic fumes        
seeps through to soil          
sanguine hopes        
of growth they toil   
         
stranger's hands        
a pluck of bud        
ripe with knowledge        
of their love        
         
silent screams        
joined scents of pleas        
mingled souls        
the blooms they breath        
         
Goddess        
of the caged flower        
sings—         
hope his truthful heart  
she brings
