Just A Red Rose


Some said he was enamoured by my beauty.

Some others felt he loved my youth that was blossoming.

Some others warned that he was fascinated by my sensual smell.

He spent a lot of time with me.

I was sure that I had his complete care and attention....

Then, she entered into his life.

I felt she was the thorn in our relationship.

They made me realize that for them I was the thorn!
Their hateful actions maligned my beautiful assets.
I metamorphosed into the zero-petals rose with hero-seeds of hope and fragrance.
I stopped being just a red rose...

Do you feel a rose without its petals is any good and deserves to be loved nevertheless? Do share in the comments below.

  2. I'm not much of a gardener. If I can't eat it, I don't really care what happens to it.
