No delicate petal floats away


They bloom brilliantly,

competing with the vibrant sun

A stem stands silently in strength

How can poison ever love a rose

When its very scent darkens

salubrious scarlet

Its breath shatters

thorny resilience

And the leaves whither away

Poison cannot exist alongside a rose

Because its raison d’etre is to destroy

A crack in a wall does not make it fall

does not make it weak

If the cracks are there from the beginning-

There will never be a wall at all
