That’s the thing about a rose

When you get too close

You start to notice the thorns

You see the ridges

The petals that have begun to fall

The color is dimmer

The less beautiful it is

Do you love it less?

Or do you appreciate the closeness?

Do you want the perfection?

The closer we are, the more realer it is

Maybe that’s why

We fall in love from afar

Love from a distance

Is that the illusion of it all?


One thought on “Rose

  1. The almighty creator teaches us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves and that we must not cast judgment upon others. So it can only be right that we must accept people as they’re and offer guidance when there’s need to.

    I applaud you on your journey and I wish that it will take you places that only your imagination had gone before. I urge you to follow your heart and your dreams and excel to be the best that you can be. Commencing on a journey that you destin to become may not be easy, but if you arm yourself with diligence and persistence you will be sure to arrive at that destination.

    Wish you all the best in your endeavors!!!!!!!!
