The Ennui of Roses

Image

One thin rose danced in the dark,

Reaching for window panes during the nights like dying men reaching for God

 

Two stems – too sad to know better,

Breaking its back to reach the light that wasn’t there

 

Starved, full of the wisdom of pain,

Overcome with the sad idea that somewhere, someone loved him

 

The flower strained and grew,

Throwing its burden at the matte black glass sky

 

It broke through and bloomed.
