Painting Roses

Location

The Red Queen

wanted red roses.

The roses were whte,

so the cards painted them red.

 

Red roses

a common symbol of love.

 

I paint roses everyday

for you.

They aren't red,

nor white.

I don't want to be cliche

 

Would you still love me

if I painted you 

a black rose?

 

Love can be lustful

like a red rose.

pure white

like a virgin.

or black

like the bruised and broken
