Darling Rose

My darling rose, youíve been a cruel lover
How you ended up this way, I cannot help but to wonder
You once ruled over me and shunned my words to focus on those of another
The beauty I buried in proses turned into hollow noise,
  my verses meant nothing
Love notes I penned just fell short of your glory

My darling rose, I see you now, crisp and withering
I feel you dig in
  a slight rip in my skin
Finding your thorns remains my fondest form of foreplay
I trace your edges not too carefully
Your submission is teasing

My darling rose, allow me to tear those petals to shreds
 † Iím dying to unveil what lies inside
While my fingertips brush against your stem
 † nothing between us is complete yet
So, let me test our distance
This is merely a new starting point

My darling rose, youíve grown so meek lately
To your gardens I shall bring the rain
Downturn while Iím away, youíll learn to depend on me
 † as your sunshine... as your everything
Let me cherish you fully
I'll pull the weeds from your bed
 † and defend your purity

My darling rose, see the efforts I have made?
All things under my thumb have been kept green
 † I hope you grow into the shape I need
You look frail again as I cull your wild branches
Such a pity, those thorns I once lusted for are weak
A habit that will come back to shame me
Your cold indifference siphons the joy from my heart
To thrive or to die?
The masochism I used to enjoy is no longer pleasurable it seems

My darling rose, exploring my dominance was fun for a while
Inflicted nicks and bites,
 † simply content to watch you bleed
Now I sense no excitement just boredom and greed
Was I too late or is this union worthy enough to save?
Alas, I shall return my dearest to the dirt and hope to see her next spring

My darling rose, find solace in your beauty sleep
