Perpetual Rose

White Roses
The masquerading rose
within one’s soul
oh how thorns prick
and take their toll.

The blooming petals
so temptingly sweet
fraudulently grown
placed at feet.

Alas; Roots grow deep
within the ground
what once was there
will come around.

Touch of velvet
soft essence treat
yet without the thorns
are not complete.
