Thorns of a Rose
By: Eve Estelle
Beautiful as day,
As alluring as the night;
Be entranced by its aroma,
This dazzling delight.
Such vibrant hues, they draw you in;
But you should be wary, of the teeth within.
Hidden behind beauty's veil,
Kept contained by a gentle warmth,
Is the power to fight tooth and nail -
To survive the storm and gusty gale;
So should you happen upon this flame,
Keep in mind for those adorned,
You must be careful with your chosen game,
For every rose has its thorns.
