If Only I Knew How to Love You

fragile rose
your sorrow blooms
through your false pose
you have led yourself to your doom

so easily crushed
so unprepared
for the onslought of lust
and the battering nightmares

I wish I could love you
but how can I bring myself to love
something as delicate as you?
tell me my pure dove

tears grace your face
I rush to your aid
but before you can be embraced
I run you over and again you fade

your soft skin yearns to be whipped
your blood aches to be shed
I want to crush you in my brutal grip
with my love until you are dead

but it is the wrong path to take
you are a vexing concept
if only you wouldn't break
if only you were durable and adept

but you are so delicate
my fragile rose
you were never able to handle it
you can never handle such harsh blows

If only I knew how to love you
then you would be safe with me
If only I knew
If only I could see......
